"We were extremely tired from the flights when we arrived so wre looking forward to have a good night's sleep before starting our holiday adventure properly the next morning. However that was not to be the case. The air conditioning was extremely noisy and with it switched off the room was far to warm. The fridge kept making loud rumbling noisies through the night but to cap it all the road noise all night long was very frustrating. On a more positive note, the staff were very nice as was the breakfast."
