Shower drain was blocked, bathroom could have been cleaner. Slight scent of old nicotine permeated the room.

Thank you for your comments. We rely on guests to report issues to management so that they can be dealt with. The drain blockage was rectified the day after you reported the problem so thank you for bringing it to our attention. If the bathroom was not as clean as you expected I wish you had mentioned it so I could bring it to the attention of our cleaning staff. We pride ourselves on having very clean rooms and the majority of our guests indicate our rooms are exceptionally clean. As a non smoker, I checked your room and could not detect any nicotine odours, nor any offensive smell. Best wishes

Our photographs are very accurate and not manipulated in any way so I am unsure why you have made this comment! However, our standard rooms are very different to our Executive rooms which are different to our Kitchenettes etc. Before you select your room make sure you look at the photographs for THAT room type as I feel this maybe where you became confused. Cheers

I liked that it was at ground level as I had my elderly parents with me. I also liked that I could park directly outside the room as it made it really easy with my parents' belongings.

What you see is what you get! Bathroom floor gets a bit wet but fairly neat and tidy.

Hi Emma, Thank you for your review. In regard to the bathroom floor you must have stayed in a kitchenette which has a bathroom specifically designed for easy access to the shower. ie no hob.
