On approaching the hotel the immediate outside area is very shabby, complete with a homeless person sleeping on the floor…..
The staff were really great & welcoming we had booked to stay for 1 night in a superior deluxe double room - the door to the room was full of scratches , we entered and room was quiet spacious with a large bathroom and a wasted corridor space which was large between the bathroom and the bedroom. We were disappointed due to a few details , like the wall paper was peeling off in certain areas the furniture looked scoffed and the carpet was also worn out - also the bed was not very comfortable! Obviously it was not a room which has been recently renovated (319)- basically it needed a lot of care from housekeeping or its on their to do list….
