Our room was very uncomfortably hot throughout our stay. We mentioned this to the very friendly hotel staff and they quickly provided a large fan for our room. This succeeded only in blowing around the overheated air. We kept the window full open (in December!) but the room stayed like a sweatbox. We also tried to sleep on the top of the bedding, but continued sweating through the night. The heat was even more intense in the mornings, so getting ready to head out was uncomfortable and sticky. The air conditioning unit in the room was not operating to try and reduce the heat.
I noticed another reviewer of this hotel commented on a cold room, so it seems the hotel heating system is giving major problems in maintaining tolerable temperatures.
Apart from the overheating problem, the room itself was fine and well furnished and equipped. The staff continue to be a really strong point about this hotel.
