Our television was broken + they couldn't find a spare one, when we mentioned all of this, I was told the manager would call me. 5 days later after I had left 3 messages I spoke to him, where he was the rudest, most unprofessional...

ROOM 2 is to be avoided at all costs - windows open onto the ventilation system for the kitchen which is located beneath the room. Toilet door has no inside handle just the remains of a non functioning bolt. Floor of this room and...
