Bedroom could be better
Our stay was very pleasant - the reception and restaurant staff were very nice. The public areas of the hotel look to be very clean and set up for the Covid restrictions. However with bedrooms supposed to being deep cleaned between guests was shocked to see a few hairs from a previous user in bathtub and some sort of childs toy beside lamp in the bedroom area - have to admit it made me uneasy. Also noticed a stain on the side of the bed base
