I liked the fact that there was an after hours entrance and exit and that there seemed to be central heating because everywhere seemed to be warm we didnt need to use any heater I liked the fact that the doors locked automatically when closed just had to make sure you have the key on you. I wasn't a great fan of the old school key entry but I think I grew up in that era so it didn't bother me too much just more fiddly getting back in with items in my hands which I had to put down and then try n make as little noise as possible cause I'm respectful would recommend an upgrade to swipe cards for all rooms and after hours door I'd pay slightly more just for that alone
