Liked: Relatively spacious bedrooms

Disliked: The cold. The heating was not turned on and there was no prospect of it being turned on. One resident said she had asked for the heating to be turned on but was told that the heating was turned off because it was summer. The cold water tap in our room did not work.International travellers like us need to have heating so we can get our damp clothes dry and we can warm up after being out in the cold weather all day.The sand in the showers. If you had a shower you stood on sand. Then you walked through sand and could wipe the sand off your feet on the carpet. No lock on our bedroom door. We blocked it with our belongings.Suspect hygiene: the tea towels were too dangerous to use.Breakfast did not happen at 8 am, the appointed time, There was no milk.Cavalier treatment of the residents by ignoring their needs and treating them casually.We went down at 8 am for breakfast but it was not happening. The kitchen floor had just been washed and the bench cleaned but the same dangerous tea towels were left on the bench.Ver light duvet or dune on the bed, inadequate for the season.The staff were mostly unavailable.
