The staff were lovely, and the room was nice BUT the shower had very low pressure and was virtually a dribble. I'm also not a fan of ironing boards with no legs so you have to get onto the floor to iron something.

Im so sorry to hear about the water pressure. We have now gotten someone in to fix it. Also if you ever need a bigger ironing board, please feel free to ask our reception staff for another one!
