    Default Is this false advertising?

    This place to stay says on their website that each room has "individually controlled reverse cycle airconditioning"

    In reality, the aircon is set at a temperature that is controlled centrally.

    They explain that you have the choice of turning aircon on or off... Or open a window...or dress more appropriately.

    Feeling mislead and ****ed off, what would you do?

    It's hardly "individually controlled in each room " read "in" being the key here. False advertising.

    Yes that would annoy the living daylight out of me.

    Having the choice to "open a window" is hardly "individually controlled". Sounds a bit Fawlty Towersish.

    I would feel ripped off
