2/5 Poor

Travelled with pets, Travelled with group
Disliked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities
The room was not very clean, the breakfast was disappointing as no fruit or healthy alternatives available. With the notable exception of Jamie, the staff were sullen and didn't seem to be very happy - and certainly had not been properly trained. The pillows were hard. I know it's not an expensive hotel, but with some warm smiles, good food and cleanliness, the experience would have been far more positive. There are not costly items.
