Was ok. Room was fairly small for the money we paid. It was very basic. Don’t think I’d stay there again to be honest.

Travelled with partner
Disliked: Cleanliness, staff & service
Check in was under staffed and not trained well. Room was not cleaned well, with areas of dust, dirt and hair left untouched. I appreciate this is a large chain, but there seemed to be very little care given.
