"We stayed in the irene room"
"All of the rooms look lovely, although some are a bit larger than others. No matter which room you are in, though, it should be nice and quiet."
"If you like claw tubs, ask for that room. Other rooms have showers. Room called Pauline is smallest but big enough for two with plenty of room to walk around."
