Triple room stay

Check in was smooth and our room was ready for us. Although very basic, it was very clean. The towels and bedding were good quality and again spotless. The curtains were different lengths, the wardrobe was shaky but all were functional! We requested an extra cup, milk and the hand wash to be filled on our way out and all was sorted when we came back. We met three different members of staff and all were friendly and obliging. The only thing that we found to be a problem was the bad smell from the drains in the bathroom, buying air fresheners didn't even help.
