It wasn’t cold by South Island standards but the Auckland hotel room was a little cooler than I find comfortable.
It had what we call a heat pump on the Mainland, but I suspect it’s used more often as an air conditioner up here and regardless of which setting I tried, all I could get was cold air.
I had a restless night because I wasn’t quite warm enough, got up at 6.30 without putting brain in gear, turned on the shower and got drenched with cold water.
It’s the fault of the shower designer that the rose is on the wall directly opposite the door. I was staying only one night so couldn’t have done anything to upset the cleaner the day before. But I wonder if someone else had and that’s why s/he had angled the shower rose so the water gushed straight out rather than down?
