Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities
We stayed in room 9 which was spotless and nicely decorated.There needs to be a mirror over the desk to do your hair and make up and there needs to be a little shelf in the shower to put your things on.It is over a bar which is open until 12.30 so a little noisy but still worth staying .Really good value for money

2/5 Poor

Travelled with family and small children
Liked: Cleanliness, amenities
Location is excellent. Room was very clean. However, the window does not fully close in room 1 and when there is a takeaway food outlet directly below, the stay became a disaster. Very noisy until after midnight and when you have 2 children, this impacted on the following day with very grumpy tired kids. A real shame.
