Odd for the price

Was a bit surprised as allegedly four star hotel but Ive had better facilities at a two star... The power point outlets did not work by the bed The phone did not work No tea or coffee making facilitis in room-had to ask for them... Very noisy train going past Staff were great and attended to every request (altho the ohone was not fixed). The shampoo and conditioner was awesome Good location close to shops Overall adequate but stayed at nicer places at a better price :)
