    Description of the property and House Rules are important. 
    In my House Rules it is written a quite time after 22.00h. 
    If there wold be a "party" or some loud shit, I would ask them politly to stop, or politly show them the exit door, or I will call the police. Fck these guests. For me are valued guests those who follows House rules etc. Potentially because of some noisy guests, youll receive a bad reviews from other guests that are staying there that day.

    The point is that we are in this business, and there will be always those "few" guests with a different perspective, snob, or just an unhappy ones with their life.. We can't do nothing about them, but we can do a lot for the rest of the guests that are "normal" and are giving us positive reviews.

    Prevention is always the best. I would suggest revision on your policies. Ensure guest are made aware of your policies prior to booking.

    Samples  Noise: For the comfort of other guests we have strict no noise policy after 10 pm.

     No Party Policy:This policy is designed to ensure that all our guests can enjoy their time with us and not be inconvenienced through noise and action of others. Any guest failing to comply with this may be asked to leave without refund.

    Address your main concerns/complaints, then update your policies. The most important thing is to follow through on your policies. You will then gain more trusted guests.

    If we had all of these problems we would sell up

    Our Inspector advised us to ask guests to leave if their behaviour causes serious problems and to call the police if necessary but do not get into any big discussion once you have told them to leave

    We're fortunate that most of our clients are "active" so after a long day of skiing or hiking all they want to do is relax in our hot tub, eat then sleep. However, we do communicate with our guests at check-in that our billiard room and hot tub are open/close at a certain time. We also mention that we are an older non-sound proof lodge. There have been times when guests are ready to party and whoop it up during special events in our town (Blues and Brew, NYE). We also have an on site night manager to help if there are loud guests.

    For the comfort of all guests (and your own sanity) you must implement and enforce some rules.  We advise guests of the rules upon booking and reinforce 2 days before arrival.  We live on site so we know what goes on and thankfully we don't attract too many trouble makers and in the 11 years of running/owning the business I've only ever had to evict a few times - once for sneaking in a dog and a few times for booking for 2 people and arriving with many more people (for a room that sleeps 2!).  Be firm but not rude and be insistent - your property, your rules

    So I've just had the guests from hell. 3 guys who have no idea about cleanliness or etiquette. They smoked everywhere and used up all the towels. Dirty dishes in sink and beds all over the place. Used condom on bedroom floor. Pills galore. Cigarettes in bedrooms.

    The guy who booked did not give me back my house keys yet. He was supposed to meet me at 10am today at the apartment to do this. It is is situated in my family block. I was advised to report him to the police for theft of house keys. I warned him about this and still no reply. I cannot believe his arrogance and indifference.

    On another note, booking.com should make guests advise names and ages of guests and what relation they are to them, so that we can vet.

    Hi everyone,

    Thanks for this post! There is another thread happening about T&Cs that might be of interest.

    Also, if you have any house rules, please feel free to share your template. Other partners would be grateful!

    Laura my house rules are clearly in sight for them to read. They were just **.

    Make sure your house rules are in the room info folder and point it out on arrival

    I evicted my first guests in the 15 years we have operated recently and actually felt good afterwards

    Needless to say they were charged
