Dear Carole Apologies your stay was not up to your expectations. Regarding the heating in the bedroom this is solely controlled by all bedrooms, where instruction manual is present within the room, had this been reported to a member of staff we would have been more than happy to assist you. Both Coach parties were attending the hydro that evening,... More
