Bathrooms need upgrading. Carpet was really old and dirty looking. No milk in fridge and had to park car up the road as there were no parks at the hotel.

Extremely noisy, The rooms aren't even slightly sound proof you can hear everything going on in the Hallways and every time someone uses the toilets or shower in the next room you can hear it. Extremely uncomfortable bed, My neck and back were killing me because of the bed and pillows. unlike other hotels this one doesn't give you utensils in your room so you are out of luck if you didn't get any with your take out.
