Are all the bathrooms refurbed or is it just the bedroom? And is their aircon in the rooms?

"The property is on a major highway/dual carriageway, with concomiant traffic. If this troubles you, request a quiet room."
"Don't bother staying!!!"
"Ask for a quiet room, we were a long way from reception, overlooking the small planes at the back, it gave us the down time we needed."
"get away from main road"
"Could do with more tea bags 👍"
