A conveniently positioned hotel for those passing through. Rooms are spacious and fitted out well. But will somebody please train the maids? The edges of the carpet, particularly in the lifts, hadn't seen an edging tool (for cleaning staff that's a vacuum cleaner part) in months. The basin had lost it's gleam, possibly because a scourer had been used in it at some time, and the room had a peculiarly strong odor of room freshener. Perhaps if it were well vacuumed ...
But why complain? After all, the price was good and there was breakfast ... till nine AM ... and not a second later! Warning: on the dot of nine the juice and fruit will disappear and this will be followed by everything else in rapid succession, despite an almost full breakfast room.
Is my complaint fair? After all, the check in and check out was speedy, even if the staff were all morose ... And it was nice to see one of them relaxing in the empty breakfast room in front of the TV at twenty past nine as we left.
