Absolutely nothing constructive, dozed in the sun, finished the first of Ann Cleeves Shetland books, watched a bit of a new series on Netflix (The Rain, it's Danish but well dubbed into English). I do enjoy a very lazy Sunday.

Recieved first tourist customers of the year (French) and first nightly rentals since end of January, its been a peacefull 3 months and a convenient time to be struck with sepsis :lol: but I really have missed meeting new and interesting people in a happy relaxed frame of mind, that said I have had and still have superb longer term renters.

Have turned the problem of high percentage of cancellations into a positive, more income through cancellations than bookings so far this month and no changeovers!

i am doing some market research and was wondering, when you do change overs do you always change the sheets or if they still look okay just give them an iron or shake. :D

Customers have keener eyes than I do, many French women have lovely long dark hair and it gets everywhere, I have to clean out the paniers with the change of laundry before putting the folded and ironed linen in them for the changeovers or a stray hair can find its way into a freshly changed bed.

Me i prefer blondes :good: :good: cant see any trace of them in the bathroom and shower!!

Easiest changeovers are after French sales reps or trainers, the males just winning over the females because they dont have long dark hair, they will eat out and just have a coffee in the morning, bathroom looks like it has not been used, bed is made and tidy but I always change the bedding.

Its an eye opener to see how rarely the long term renters change their bedding, there is nothing for them to do as the exchange set is ironed and ready in the panier, they just need to change the sheets and towels put the panier back on the rack backwards so the à laver label shows and I take care of everything, i do their own laundry as well.

If sheets aren't laundered regularly they become pilled and unusable for customers, the long term renters now get the old bedding, still perfectly usable but I dont mind if they ruin it.

Pillow and mattress protectors need regular laundering, I have spare sets of them, and the pillows and quilts are laundered after each long term (1-3-6 month) let and/or every 3 months.
