The room needed renovation and was in very average condition. Reasonably clean but it didn't feel clean because of the condition. The bed was comfortable and the linen was clean.

The room was great and staff were very pleasant. We received a complimentary upgrade which was very nice. The only disappointment was the TV as we only had 4 digital channels and only 1 sky channel. I asked several times to have this rectified however it never occurred.
