Curious to know how you're suppose to fill the jug from the bathroom tap. When I did it I had water up the mirror and all over the basin, covering our belongings in water. Wasn't impressed.

The receptionist was kind of rude and the rooms where the construction workers are should have been cheaper than a usual room over the other side. Won't be going back here in the near future.
