Need to up their game...
Definitely showing significant signs of wear and tear. Also considerable evidence that they’re running on a shoestring staff - No one at the bar for ages, queues at reception, requests for extra tea & coffee not being acted upon...

Sad face IconDisliked: Room comfort
Great Location, disappointing room.
Bathroom Radiator Broken and permanently on hot, so the bedroom was hot, the window only opened approx 3 inches so couldn't get any air flow. The room layout was cramped and had only one chair in the room, no table, so for 2 guests we had to eat our room service meals sitting on the bed. Not the most comfortable. Feels like because I Redeemed a free night through hotels.com I was in a substandard room. Parking onsite which is good. Quite disappointing, and its safe to say, that I won't stay there again. Bit of a shame as it was conveniently placed.
