The most poorly maintained and presented room I have had the misfortune to stay in for years. This was 2 star. Smashed bed head, curtains hanging, broken window latches but worse to come. Blood spots on bed linen and pillow! Appalling experience and front counter really couldn’t care.

A little annoyed we were additional not served at your 24 hour bar at 11pm. The rooms are slighly dated and a tad shabby but very clean and tidy.
