I really  expected more.A lot of things were broken. A glass a knife the bed lamp and microwave's turning table and towel rail. The linen is full of holes and the bath towels were very small for a normalsize person. There is a big hole in one of the double beds and couch were also damaged. There were not enough winter throws  pots and toilet paper. We even found the previous people's hair (braids) on the chair.  The cleaner were also very nasty.
