The location is good. The staff seemed nice but didn't ask any questions about our needs or our stay. The room was very basic, the couch looked old and not very clean, there were only 2 pillows on the bed, the internet connection was poor. We had an infant with us as highlighted on our booking, but no portacot was provided or towels, etc. for the baby.
