Firstly let me say as a budget hotel goes, it's clean, the room is okay and the breakfast included is fine. The staff are friendly and the small problem we had on arrival was dealt with quickly.
But really what complete idiot thought that a translucent glass sliding door on the bathroom was a good idea, not only has it got a 2 inch gap all around it,so sights,noises and smells are not kept to the bathroom area, not a problem if you are one of those people who are quite happy to perform in front of an audience, but if like my family you value a little bit of privacy (12 y old in tow), it is terrible. The door also slides over to double as the wardrobe door not I would think the most sanitary thing.
My other bug bear is the fact the window is a completely sealed double glazed unit, not even a tiny little vent for fresh air ( something you need with the bathroom door!!) So you HAVE to have the air con on, over night or boil. Such a shame that a couple of design flaws have ruined this hotel.
