How do Kitchen Facilities
MAKE KITCHEN FACILITIES SUCH AS MICROWAVE AMONGST OTHER THINGS USABLE, - AT ALL HOURS OF THE DAY. PEOPLE ALSO WANT TO EAT AT OTHER TIMES OTHER THAN BREAKFAST. AND WE'RE STILL PAYING YE TO BE HERE FOR A FULL STAY, YET WE DON'T HAVE FULL USE OF THE SERVICES. IT'S NOT GOOD ENOUGH. YE SHOULD BE OBLIGED TO TAKE A THIRD OFF THE COST IF YE DON'T LET US USE THE FULL FACILITIES IN-SITU. IT'S UN-ACCEPTABLE, WE ARE PAYING FOR THE TIME WE ARE HERE.
