Generally good accommodation but definitely not on a warm spring day/night as the premium rooms (upstairs river view) do not have airconditioning nor air ventilation. Windows are unopenable (paint) and as balcony is shared with other rooms, leaving balcony door open all night is not an option. No fan other than a miniature split system heater that was useless. Only option was to swelter all night. Furthermore, smokers on either side partaking their habit on the balcony necessitated closing door because of cigarette odours. Overall, we were quite disappointed with the accommodation provided.
