I thought that having paid for breakfast, having to pay extra for a cup of tea was unnecessary - surely a cup of tea would be included in a breakfast charge?

The room was a good size, very spacious, great for a 4-person family. Loved it! However. there was no fan in the shower, toilet room and no hand towel holder in the sink area. We’d also appreciate more outlets in the room for device charging. Overall, we had a great stay!
