          hi Jules if I had seen this post first I would have made sure that the room I booked had block-out curtains. We stayed in room 208b last night and got woken up at 6.30 with the sun, It looks like the management of this place does not want to spend any money on making sure their visitors make a return visit ,or bad word of mouth to their friends. I will be spreading the word about this dump, not doing anything about the curtains since your review , 4 months is a long time and the rooms are not cheap The question is would the missing block-out curtain cause you not to return
