Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, property conditions & facilities
The staff were all so helpful and cheerful. Disappointed we had cold water in shower for 2 days but we’re moved to a new room on 3rd night. No milk pods in room for drinks and fresh milk was sour by morning. The televisions on wall are so very small and kept pixelating. Breakfast was yummy 😋. Location was brilliant with good parking.
