Room 8 is tiny
When I booked this I saw photos of rooms and thought yes that's certainly 4 star standard. The room we got was tiny. Couldn't even fit a wardrobe so clothes had to hand on hooks on the wall. To be fair I wasnt promised a Harbour view but room 8 is NOT 4 star standard. Its far too small and the TV is the smallest I think I've ever seen... Think iPad. The lady who checked us in and served us breakfast was really nice and works incredibly hard. Breakfast was nice but if we ever come again I will make sure that we get a different room.
