Disliked: Staff & service
No response when I called to discuss check in time, no call back. Terrible service. Would like a refund

3/5 Okay

Disliked: Property conditions & facilities
I accept that for £65 a night you are not going to get a lot but the state of the décor and lighting was awful. £20 worth of paint and Polyfilla is all that it would take to bring it up to acceptable level.
