In what will be a surprise to no one except the Union Street Guest House management team, this policy has resulted in an increase in negative reviews, mostly from people who have not stayed there but who believe the policy to be absurd.
Here’s a thought for the Guest House team: if you’re upset about negative reviews, provide better service. You might even try listening to what your guests are telling you and making changes to provide a better experience.
The Guest House explains on its website that it is not for everyone, and that its vintage look is sometimes unpopular with guests. Instead of fining those who don’t like the look, the Guest House should try targeting its message to those who will.
