Disappointed that there was no one at the property/reception when we arrived and we were told by the cleaner we would have to wait 5 mins for someone to get back. We were in a hurry as attending a wedding, which we had advised about prior to arriving. Unit was very warm and no air conditioning, also the unit was on the street front which was very noisy.

Hi, We are very sorry that you were disappointed. Check in is not till 2pm and we had arranged an early check in for you for 12pm, we at 1:30pm had to pop out for 10mins to pick up a request for another guest and unfortunately this co-insided with your arrival. We do have fans in all the rooms to assist with having no air-conditioning, but we will take your concerns about air-conditioning and noise on board to see what can be done about this in future. Thank you for your feedback.
