Thank you for your review following your recent stay with us. I am pleased you enjoyed your time with us and were well looked after by the team. We are only a 3 star hotel and do not claim to have air conditioning but know that everyone has been rather warm the past few days. Each bedroom does have a fan in the wardrobe, sorry you didn't find this. We do hope you would return if in the area again. Jason Bartella Managing Director
