Room was clean but very very small. Only one suitcase rack and fridge and microwave were stored in the wardrobe (due to lack of space). Small preparation area for tea and coffee because we had to put other stuff on the bench. Single bed under a hanging television was quite off putting and no reading lamp for this bed. Bright outside lights on other units kept the room lit all night.
