Excellent with only one minor hockey up. The batteries in the remote controller were flat. I had to operate tv by the old tried and true method by pushing buttons bottom right hand corner of tv. I'd definitely stay there again

nothing unique, same as most hotels which is fine, nothing outstanding. the room I was in had a damaged toilet seat, unhygienic so not happy about that and there was a heater flu running up through it so as soon as someone lit the fire it starting cracking and warming up which woke me so I would not like to stay in that particular room again, but i would come to stay again.
