Location fantastic as were the friendly and helpful staff. I felt the bathroom could have been a bit cleaner and better maintained. Glass screen was not clean and the mirror in the shower was damaged. Also consider placing the tea/coffee/sugar in a container rather than in the mugs. You have to tip it all out to use the cups which makes the bench really messy for the rest of your stay.

Showers are wayyyy to slippery really need texturising or non slip mat in there, I wasn't told my bond didn't go through the night before so I bit of confusion the next morning at check out so clearer communication around this would have been nice and night staff had no clue how to sort out a later checkout time which ment I had to come down after morning shift to sort it out started but other than those things had an enjoyable stay
