Yes, mostly daily temp is around 22 C, not 28 C as it was when you arrived. Lucky it cooled down at night! For our usual type weather the ceiling fans are all that is needed for comfort. Thank you for your review. All the best.

We are not sure which guest this is as the review is anonymous but we are surprised by it. We are always engaging with our guests and answer all questions about Penguins and other attractions in a friendly way. We tell all guests where the two main locations are to view the Penguins in the evening, usually around 9.30 pm. We have an information sheet that we hand out. We have information on the reception desk. The wall hooks for wet towels and the sink tap sometimes get loose from regular use by guests and we tighten them up every couple of weeks. Any look at our many reviews both here and elsewhere will show that this particular review is most rare. But we are sorry that you were disappointed.
