I guess it’s ok just to spend one night. A MW oven in the room would be nice.

Was ok for what it is, smelt like a toilet urinal though - whatever cleaning product is being used is not appealing at all. Quite rundown and could do with a revamp. Staff were lovely however, would stay again if there was no where else, just cant get over the smell!
