A mum has been left "shocked" at how clean her chalet was during a stay at Pontins.

Kirsty Bamping is a self-confessed clean freak who makes sure to bring scrubbing equipment with her when she goes on holiday.

The Manchester woman booked a stay at Southport Pontins on the spur of the moment because of limitations on travel abroad, Liverpool Echo reported.

She wasn't even put off from making the trip when her friends turned down the opportunity to come, due to concerns about hygiene.

Yet when Kirsty arrived she was blown away by the standard of the chalet.

"I asked my friends if they'd come with me and they said 'no way, it's disgusting'," she said.

"I'd read the bad reviews and I was dreading it to be honest.

"'I am a clean freak so I took so many cleaning products with me.

"I couldn't believe the chalet when I saw it. Everything was spotless, the kitchen, everywhere.

"I scrubbed the pans, because I always do that, but they didn't even need it. The bedding was all brand new, too.

"I was so shocked. Not a speck of dust in sight, I even asked for an extra pillow and it came within five minutes.
