We stayed at in a "standard" room which turned out to be a large room converted into a bedroom plus bathroom. They had carved off a metre down one side and put up a glass wall between the toilet and the pillow (not soundproof at all and the lack of privacy was awkward). There was a more substantial wall between the shower and the bedroom, but in the morning the shower was stone cold. There was no one to tell about the lack of hot water in the shower as reception was manned by a mobile phone with an emergency number beside it! As it was not an emergency we had to leave without telling any staff. The previous night our pre-booked dinner was cancelled. They said that they had tried to contact us; however, the staff had not suggested or booked anywhere else to go and on New Year's Eve and kilometres from any other restaurant this mean we missed the memorable meal we were hoping for.
