I won't stay there again,”

I was on the ground floor, which was good. Unfortunately there were very noisy people above me, and from morning till about 10 p.m. I could hear thumping feet and voices even above the sound of my t.v. Hardly any channels on t.v. No t.v. in bedroom. The towels were really thin. First accommodation I've been in with no hot chocolate offered. Teabags tasted old so I bought tea. Coffee was nice. Owners unavailable on my morning of departure at 9 a.m., but I understand they were in the process of moving out.
