I stayed in a single room on the top floor which was cold. My room was like an ice box. Made sleeping difficult as no heating in the room. Brrrr.

Hi, all rooms have heaters - I am sorry to hear you had trouble with it - we hope you asked reception for assistance as they would have been able to move you or provide a temporary additional heater? I am sorry you were cold during your stay.

Rooms do not have aircond, so it is impossible stay in this hotel on summer. Breakfast is good, it could be better.
