    Aamiainen

    Yöpyminen hyvin, mutta aamuainen jäi syömättä. Henkilö , kuka pyyhku salin oöytiä, tiputti rätin lattialle. Nosti sen ja jatkoi samlla rätillä pöytien pyyhkimistä. Suorastaa pöyristyttävää. Missä on hygienia ?

    Ohimenomatkalla Oulussa

    Hotellin vastaanotto oli kirjautumisen yhteydessä yllättävän kiireinen ja henkilökunta ei niin palvelualtis. Hotellin ei myöskään uskaltanut luvata meille parkkipaikkaa, koska niiden paikat ovat rajalliset, vaikkakin hotelli valittiin osittain myös siitä syystä, että parkkipaikat ovat saatavilla. Valitsimme uudistetun huoneen, mikä oli erittäin siisti ja toimiva.
