          Hi - I am wondering if this place is still operational?? the place looks incredible but the website looks like it was created 30years ago! LOL and i have written to them via email and rung but no response... and these reviews are all 5 years old. I must say i would die if there really were rats and bed bugs. But meanwhile, just wondering if it's closed down?
