Value for money. Very clean and nice staff. There were only two things I can fault, could not open the window for fresh air and it becomes a bit stuffy in the room in the morning but otherwise would recommend it.

Please clean the ceiling of the lift - I looked up and it was gross. Other than that everything was just fine.
