The only problems we had were the pillows were pretty much non existent and the bedding needed updating. Apart from that we were happy. The area is lovely. Lots of things to do and see. No problems with staff they were very accommodating when I wanted to use the bath and needed a plug. Thanks guys !!

Staff was nice. Room was clean but a little smelly. Also outdated. My main concern was the shower curtain. It was dirty and a little moldy at the bottom and needed to be washed or replaced. Other than that it was ok. It was very close to the event we were attending and pretty quiet.
