It was fantastic aside from the hotel room which was far too small and noisy at night.

I think you should be informing people of your terms and conditions. This is particularly important when you expect me to sit next to a large person who is taking half my seat as well as their own. It made me feel very uncomfortable and I don't feel I'd like to book another holiday with the company.
