The room was clean and comfortable. It may have been nice to add a few different varieties of tea bags.

The only concern I had about my stay was the shower in the room I had, had the issue of any water overrun from off the floor or myself ended up by the doorstop on the oppisite side of the bathroom. This meant there was no dry place to stand after the shower till I had used the spare towel to dry the floor. This is a design issue which I spoke to the cleaning staff about and they were aware of.
