Thank you for taking the time to detail the issues that you encountered during your time at our hotel. Our building is of a certain age, and whilst this is very attractive to some people, we are sorry that it was not what you were looking for. It certainly sounds as if we missed an opportunity to deliver a great room and great service to a guest, and we apologize. We will ensure that the relevant lessons have been learnt, and that future guests enjoy a better stay. Best wishes, Hotel Management

Will the pool be heated and open for Thanksgiving weekend? Thanks.
what might we expect for breakfast before hitting the road?
You'll have a light continental breakfast. Cereal, toast, coffee. There may be yoghurt and pastries but, to be truthful, I've forgotten. I do remember it was all clean and fresh
