Rooms recently refurbished but these are just bedrooms with a sliver of a desk, a mini box for a fridge and a toaster and jug squeezed in for good measure. But worst of all - no air conditioning! The fans could not get bedrooms less than 25 overnight and one couple struggled to rest in a bedroom that remained at 27 until the very early hours of the morning (they were unable to leave window open due to road noise)
