3/5 Okay

Liked: Staff & service, property conditions & facilities
The carpet needed a vacuum, there were bits on it, as well as pieces of gravel, which my bare feet kept finding. The heating wasn't on, there wasn't a spare blanket for the bed and it was cold at night. Banging doors need to be quietened. More attention needs to be paid by housekeeping. Otherwise apart from these issues I enjoyed my stay and would return.
