1/5 Terrible

Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities
Disliked: Property conditions & facilities
The bedroom allocated to me was in the lower ground floor. It was classified as a twin room with two single beds. The room was way too small with one bed only being accessible by climbing on to the end of the bed - no room on either side. The room was not fit for purpose. The room was also very noisy with a permanent and continuous droning noise keeping me awake. I will not be staying there again

Friendly welcome. Unfortunate drainage smell in bathroom cleared after a day but a concern Lacks an extractor. Continental breakfast only of mediocre standard. No bedroom tourism information is a surprise. Cleaner left door open on the day it was cleaned.
