Walls paper thin that you can hear everything your neighbours are doing, no kettle/fridge or microwave in room so you have to use common area. Advertise that they have spa/massage but dont actually have anyone to do it...they have to get someone off sight if they can. Rooms so outdated and falling apart. Not worth the money

I’m sorry that we couldn’t get any one to do the massages due to the long weekend , it needs to be booked in advance as it was a busy time for us, most of our rooms have fridges and kettles but not in our basic rooms, thank you for taking the time to leave us a review it is helpful for us to improve

Hi I’m sorry that the room conditions did not meet your standards, but we have individually controlled heaters in the rooms and the guest needs to adjust it to their desired temperature, but thank you for bringing this to our attention
