    The beds were comfy

    The shower was very poor unable to have a decent shower. There were not enough tea/ coffee facilities. The garden was very unkempt with rubbish/ dirty nappies on floor.carpet in stairs was dangerous.

    Clean sheets, bus stop 100 yards from property.

    Bathroom - No soap so we had to use shampoo sachets we found close to the reception desk, no toilet paper, no towel rail in bathroom, light over shower kept going out, no shelf in bathroom, no shaving socket. Bedroom - Hairdryers had not been PAT tested, bedside tables in very poor state. Two cups but only one saucer, no milk. TV stood on old broken bedside cabinet which had no bottom draw the other draw had no handle. Only one bedside light. Power cut on our floor late afternoon; when I phoned the contact number left on reception the woman put the phone down on me A man did turn up but very frustrating & unpleasant experience.

    Location was good for our purpose, about 30 min walk to center of city. Were lucky and got parking space.

    Grimy shower and dusty floors and lack of hooks in bathroom and room in general. We were 3 adults sharing, only one place to put one suitcase. No handtowel. Although the bathtowels were good size, they had a strange chemical smell and added to the dust in the room and onto our clothes.
