Check in ok, breakfast was good, staff friendly. Only thing was that we had a bad room. Half used shampoo still in shower, fan left out in middle of room up against suitcase rack. Chairs facing each other up against the window. Obviously the room was not checked before we arrived. Very pokey and certainly nothing like the photos that were portrayed on website.
