Looked pretty clean initially but came across a few not so great things. Furniture needs replacing - chunks missing off tables, bedside drawers, etc. plasterer literally outside my door first thing in the morning making a racket. TV was a nightmare to operate. Friendly reception staff. Offered to take my bags to the room.

The pillow cases were dirty, the beds were hard, with no blankets and the heating was noisy with no thermostat or way to control room temperature.

Good parking. Quiet location.

Pros: Great host at entrance. Very organised for our arrival and accommodating.
Connecting rooms meant comfort for all. Very limited bench space for breakfast preparation. Pulled out bed side table to access plugs - very dirty dusty behind easily accessible and light bedside table.
