Question WL Room Refrigerators- garden grocer related

I'm trying to put my order together for garden grocer. My little ones drink a lot of milk and I'd like to have a carton handy in the room for before bedtime and for when they wake up. However, I recall the fridge at the Poly was terrible- barely kept the items cold. There was also no freezer compartment either so I couldn't freeze my ice pack for park outings. This time we're staying at WL. Just wondering if the room refrigerators were decent.

Same size as Poly fridges. Unless you're in a villa with a kitchen, it's the small fridge, no freezer. We've never had a problem with the fridges keeping things cold enough, but if you do, phone housekeeping and let them know. They can replace it possibly with another one.

Also, if the refrigerator is located in a cabinet like at the Poly, leave the cabinet door open so the refrigerator has better circulation.

I've done that, then mouse keeping comes along and closes it all the ones I've seen are in cabinets.
