I stayed here recently, and found standards, particularly in the restaurant, to be poor.
The room itself was large, and what you would expect from a hotel chain, however in the bathroom the plug mechanism from the sink was missing. I had to put the plug in with my hand, then in order to empty the water out I had to scrabble with my fingernails to pull it back out; all around the plug was slime and old soap where it had not been cleaned properly. It was disgusting.
I am vegetarian, and there was only one vegetarian option at dinner, so no choice. The main course was a very small portion of stir fried vegetables and noodles, all of which were tasteless and there was no protein element to the dish. At lunch the following day there was no vegetarian option at all. I was offered plain pasta. Breakfast was good, except that we were not offered coffee. When the waitress brought round tea, I asked for coffee and was told she would bring some, but she never did.
On the positive side, the staff were all friendly, though there were not enough of them to do the job properly. We had a long wait to check in as only one member of staff was available, and she was on the phone. Another waitress at breakfast might have meant we got coffee.
