Cher client,

Nous sommes heureux que vous ayez eu un bon séjour dans notre chalet. Je suis désolé que vous ne savais pas que l'électricité n'a pas été inclus dans le prix, mais il est clairement indiqué sur notre site dans la" prix et les disponibilités" la page (www.lalscottage.com/index.php/rates/). À l'avenir, nous allons transmettre cette information au cours des étapes de l'enquête de la réservation du client afin de s'assurer qu'il est clair pour tous les clients ( le coût moyen de l'électricité est de 10 € par semaine).

S'il vous plaît être conscient que, même si la maison a une vieille sensation qu'il est isolé aux normes très élevées, et la ventilation est fournie par l'ouverture des fenêtres. Le salon central a un haut plafond (avec donnant sur balcon) et, naturellement, il faudra une quantité d'énergie pour chauffer cette zone . Aussi, Avril n'est pas la période la plus chaude de l'année en Irlande!

Bien que 14 heures par semaine chauffage central au fuel est inclus dans le prix de location hebdomadaire, en réalité, cela revient à 28-30 heures de temps de chauffage de la chaudière s'allume et s'éteint à plusieurs reprises quand il atteint la température de consigne, c'est à dire qu'il ne pas fonctionner en continu.

Nous acceptons qu'il pourrait y avoir eu un malentendu dans la meilleure façon d'utiliser le système de chauffage en raison de difficultés de langue (je ne suis pas parle couramment le français). Vous n'avez utilisé que 9 heures huile chauffage central (voir ci-dessus, 14 heures ont été inclus dans le prix) de sorte que vous pourriez avoir utilisé 5 heures gratuitement. Nous avons préparé un document “bienvenue /informations" en Français afin qu'il soit clair pour tous nos futurs clients comment utiliser au mieux le système de chauffage central afin de gagner un maximum d'avantages.

Nous vous remercions pour vos commentaires et espérons vous voir en Irlande à l'avenir.

Cordialement,
Carmel

Dear Guest,

We are glad you had a good stay in our cottage. I am sorry that you did not realise that the electricity was not included in the price, but it is clearly stated on our website in the “Rates and Availability” page (www.lalscottage.com/index.php/rates/). In future, we will pass on this information during the enquiry stages of guest booking to ensure that it is clear to all guests (the average electricity cost is €10 per week).

Please be aware that although the cottage has an old feel it is insulated to the very high standards, and ventilation is provided by opening windows. The central living area has a high ceiling (with overlooking balcony) and naturally it will require an amount of energy to heat this area. Also, April is not the warmest period of the year in Ireland!

Although 14 hours per week oil central heating is included in the weekly rental price, in reality, this amounts to 28-30 hours of heating time as the boiler switches on and off a number of times when it reaches the set temperature, i.e. it does not run continuously.

We accept that there might have been some misunderstanding in how best to use the heating system due to language difficulties (I am not a fluent French speaker). You only used 9 hours oil central heating (see above, 14 hours were included in the price) so you could have used another 5 hours for free. We have prepared a “welcome/information” document in French so that it will be clear to all our future guests how best to use the central heating system in order to gain maximum benefit from it.

We thank you very much for your feedback and hope to see you in Ireland again in the future.

Best regards,
Carmel
