June 2012 room 305 1st night - bed frame broken (squeaked). Matress totally lacking in proper support or stability as bed. When we moved partner bounced about - like being on a trampoline or quivering jelly. 2nd night room 306 - bed frame had broken jagged metal support - matress no better. Gave partner backache after few seconds on it, unable to sleep. We paid in advance for 4 nights but 1st time ever we felt the need to go elsewhere. WORST BEDS in 40 years of travel. A lot of money spent on external paintwotk to building but internally all we wanted was a bed we could sleep on - a very bad experience. Not acceptable in 21st century. A former sanatarium - but now lacking in TLC.
