1人がかなり到着が遅れたのにもかかわらず、お部屋で夕食を食べられる様にして下さいました。 温かい物は温かくして出して下さいました。 ありがとうございました。 お風呂場の脱衣場が、電灯が1つしかなくて薄暗いのだけが残念でした。

One person was able to eat dinner in the room even though the arrival was quite late. We warmed out the warm items. Thank you very much. I was disappointed that the dressing room in the bathroom had only one electric light and was dim.
