Poor apartment broken tv leak from ceiling in kitchen that went on to the electric cooker I reported it and a person came but did not fix it. Tv was replaced with another with only 2 channels. Overall it is dated and needs a massive refurbishment.

4/5 Good

Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, property conditions & facilities, room comfort
Good but hard to judge accuratly
judging the service isn't easy because o all the covid stuff but because the hotel was shutting down a lot f services weren't done as well as they could because they were laying off staff and basically shutting down areas of the hotel. All in all under normal circumstances I think this hotel would be really good to stay at and I think I would probably recommend it but I wouldn't rate my experience here as highly as i did their sister hotel the San Anton
