Dangerous shower
Well positioned on the beach front, comfortable room with sea view. Only gripe is that the shower door opened inwards and when you close it, it scoops all the water onto the bathroom floor. Is it legal to have a shower door opening inwards??

Room was good size but was run down and outdated. It also was positioned on what seemed more like an industrial estate and not as described as advertised. Was quite disappointed with it given the price we paid.
