Very comfortable but heating should have been on

The hotel was very clean and all staff were very friendly. Comfortable beds and the breakfast was very nice. The only criticism I have is that the room was very cold (13C) when we arrived at 3pm because the heating was off and it was a cold day. It took a good while to warm up.
