Okay so the hotel staff are very professional and friendly had no issues with staff and breakfast was lovely my issue is with the paper thin walls you can hear everything in the rooms next to you bathrooms are modern but the rooms are tired and dates soundproofing is important in a hotel for privacy and to relax so I would not stay here again.
