Thank you for your review. I am pleased you all had a wonderful time celebrating the New Year with us at our dinner and dance event. It's a great shame to read your comments regarding your room and it would have been easier to have dealt with if you had mentioned your feelings during your stay. I hope this doesn't deter you from staying with us again, especially since you had such a wonderful time at our event. Jason Bartella Managing Director
