You pay for what you get and I didn’t pay a lot so couldn’t expect a lot. It is a noisy hotel as music goes on into the night . The shower had a leak and the water was all over the bathroom floor and the tiles had started to bubble up on the wall .

Property needed a complete revamp taps continually leaking I got up 6-30 to have a shower no hot water it wasn’t until 7-30 that the hot water came through. Paintwork flaking in bathroom. The king size bed was lovely though. And the room comfortable.
