Yes there are bars on the ground floor windows, but you can open them. Go to the reception and ask for a window key and you will be able to open your bars and the kitchen bars. The windows can also open fully in RP. When you open it, there's a catch that limits how far you can open it. Pull the catch (away from you I think) and the window will open fully. You'll see what I mean when you get there. In sillitoe, there are 2 bathrooms (each with a basin, toilet and shower). The rooms aren't a bad size. Think they're bigger than some of the hall ones. The pictures of sillitoe, on that site, are quite depressing lol. When I got there, it was different in that they gave me a chest of drawers, a deak, overhead shelf and the wardrobe.
