The building/rooms felt a bit tired (broken lift buttons etc), however they were currently in the process of painting and undergoing maintenance in some areas. Reception staff were friendly & prompt respond to any requests. Rooms were average condition but clean.

Travelled with family, Travelled with family and small children
I liked the location. We were handy to most things that we wanted to do and it was big enough for the 5 of us. The room was not too clean, there was still crumbs and hair on the floor and we had to ask for amenities to clean our dishes as none had been provided. The staff were very friendly however and it was great to be able to store our luggage.
