Excellent staff and location. The size of the room was disgraceful. My wife and I had to take turns in standing up from the bed to get dressed. The bathroom area was no better.

Lovely visit. Reception was helpful. Central location which made it easy to catch cheap transit from the airport and also not far when catching a taxi. Would stay again.
