Dear Guest Thank you for your constructive comments which have been noted, unfortunately none of our rooms have air conditioning apart from the public areas. We do have some of our bedrooms down for refurbishment later on in the year, this will bring them up to the standard of the other rooms we have. It’s great to hear that you enjoyed your stay especially your breakfast, I will pass on your comments to the rest of the team and look forward in welcoming you back to the hotel when you are next in the area. Kind regards Damon Yoxall General Manager
