Air conditioning in the room would have been good as the weather was warm during the night so it didn't aid a comfortable sleep.

One meal was inevitable due to the suet pastry bring solid.... unable to cut it let alone eat it. Reimbursed for the meal and drinks not offered on arrival. Bar shut by 10:25 pm due to low number of residents and told we were unable to get further drinks. Room upgrades not offered although discussed with receptionist before and as we arrived even though we were told there were very few residents!!!!!
