Response from wightmontrene, Owner at The WightResponded December 9, 2017

We do not leave mats in baths and showers as no matter what is done they always seem to quickly get slimy and/or mouldy. You obviously must have missed the notice in the en-suite which says that they are available from either Housekeeping or Reception....More
