Cold, no one had preheated the room for us. Very outdated. A heat pump would have been good and so form of fan or heater in the bathroom is needed. Milk, although 'longlife' was yuck!

This property was not as advertised on Wotif. Our 'superior studio' did not have the upgraded bathroom featured in the photos for those units. Overall, this facility is quite tired and needs to speed up it refurbishment, The response to our observations when leaving were not particularly encouraging, either.
