It was adequate for our needs. No hot water in first room but we were relocated and upgraded to a room with its own water service which meant hot water.

Hi Anonymous, yes sadly the carpet was wet as the previous guests left the window open in a storm. We did our best to get it dry in rainy conditions and unfortunately there was not another room to move you to as we were full. So Sorry about that. . Thank you for your feedback and I have passed on the other comments to look into to the owner. Kindest regards
