Wardrobe in the bathroom!

This hotel is centrally located and easy for transport links. It is being refurbished. The bar area is very nicely done and the food was good. Room was clean and bed very comfortable. However, in our room the wardrobe and clothes drawers were in the bathroom (honestly). Also, hotel was very noisy in the mornings and we were wakened very early which was annoying on holiday.
