Staff serving dinner were very unfriendly and blunt when serving. Window very drafty in room leaving room cold over night. Ordered sandwiches for next day's work and given them at night before bed, no where to refrigerate sandwiches forcing us to leave sandwiches in the coldest place being on the window cill by the drafty window!
