Problem with guests' behaviour

Our cleaner called us.  She had just finished cleaning our house after our first Bookings guests.  We've hosted guests for about 4 years and they are almost always very respectful of our property, but our cleaner has informed us that the property was not in good condition.  The guests had smoked throughout the house - this breaks the rules specified in our guest welcome book.  I could smell smoke when they arrived and made a point of stressing that if they wanted to smoke they must do so in the garden.  The bathroom was filthy - the cleaner had to take the seat of to clean it thoroughly, there were horrible marks on the bedlinen, dirty footprints over the carpets and the blinds had been hauled off a bedroom wall and we will have to mend the wall and get our painter to touch up.  The guys were here to work.  Is there any way we can prevent these guests booking again?
