“Only Eskimos can stay here”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 31, 2010

Excellent room, excellent facilities. Major flaw being that the heating is switched off between 8pm and 8 am regardless of outside temperature. During our stay it was -3 outside and due to no heating coupled with large wooden draughty windows the temperature in the room was just above freezing.

When we dared to ask for the heating to be switched on or be provided with a heater we were told that this would not be possible for health and safety reasons!!! When we said that was ridiculous we were told that if we didnt like it to go and stay in the Travelodge !! Needless to say thats exactly what we did.

There are no fire places in the room otherwise we might have burnt the furniture to keep warm.
