You need to understand what you are getting!
Awful Checked in, was told breakfast starts at 7, I asked if there was just some fruit or something I could grab earlier as I had to leave at 6:30. Told “No” - one word answer. Said can you tell me which way to the bar? Answer “It’s closed, but it will be open mid February” Thanks that’s useful! The room 1) Tried to flush button press toilet, half the button fell off and fell into toilet 2) Toilet roll holder hanging at an angle off wall 3) Toiletries shelf unable to put toiletries on as hanging at such an angle that everything fell off 4) Heater in room took 5 mins to switch on as switch was stuck 5) Only 2 hangers (fair enough) but one was broken with an exposed nail sticking out. I know it is a basic room, but basic should not mean ‘down market’. I have stayed in basic military accomodation which is far better Second day when I got back to room, coffee,water etc had been topped up but dirty coffee cup from the morning still had coffee in. I would never stay there again, if you do be prepared for what you may get.
