Family stay
Stayed for a night with the family. The night receptionist, a friendly person, but not fully informed. We were told we could order breakfast in the morning. At 730, a new face at the reception, she was not friendly, at the same time said breakfast should have had been ordered at night. Rooms are old, windows are old single glazed, need modernisation.

Old draughty windows, heating in the room not working, and only Luke warm water in the bathroom, made for a very uncomfortable stay.
