The bathroom was disgusting. There had been sliding doors on the shower however one was missing and a shower curtain had been put up. The shower recess had grime between the tiles while the hand basin was age crinkled. It must have been 30 years old. I have photos if you require them. Also the restaurant was not open and we were not advised of this. Room service was available. Linen was clean but overall not a comfortable experience.
