Hi Autumn, Thank you for the review and score, I'm so happy you loved the location and he equipment provided! I do understand about the lights it was chosen by our architect to create a calm environment but we know its not for everyone! Some rooms ar naturally a bit brighter than others though so if you stay again we can try and allocate one of these for you. :) Best wishes, Grace
