Disliked: Room comfort
Ok
Location of the property for Waterville was very good. The double bed however was two singles pushed together with soft mattresses. It was difficult to sleep as the curtains were flimsy and the room was very bright from sunrise(early!!) A blackout blind or curtain would sort this out!
