Loved the layout (living downstairs, beds upstairs) plenty of room for everyone to spread out. Couldn’t really fault it- just minor things: -would have loved more towel hooks (was a heated towel rail but too hot to turn on in summer). - Would love bigger mugs for morning coffee 😊 - more than one toilet paper roll stocked in bathroom would be great 👍
