    The room was good and the bathroom lovely, with a large shower. Breakfast was good too, with good, local fare. One thing which could have improved my room, was a chair. Sitting on the bed doing work was not comfortable.

    I'm sorry I don't think you have to get childish/rude just because producers push you. It does not help your business, you need to put the opinions of your business first.
