The location for our purposes was great. Staff were friendly but our room was filthy. The bathroom seemed clean but the coffee table had rings in it when he weren’t from us, surfaces such as the microwave were filthy and kitchen cupboards like they hadn’t been wiped clean in forever.

Very convenient location to train station, but the hotel conditions were a bit old. Kitchen also not stocked with much cooking appliances. Dryer was all rusty and leaking.
