Yes it was cold, we are in the middle of winter. We were not aware the heater was not working properly and we do have extra blankets in the wardrobes of every unit. This guest was staying in a unit 7 steps from our reception, pity they didn't feel they could of walked and discussed these issues with us. Maybe their phone wasn't working either.
