Nice upgraded bathroom in the deluxe double. Only problem was the room was freezing and you could only turn the heater on for an hour and then had to keep turning it on to keep the room warm. The morning was an ice box. But it was clean and tidy and did the job

Sad face IconDisliked: Cleanliness
Location was great and the room itself was excellent. However, the bathrooms were DISGUSTING. I was only there for two nights and a full day and those bathrooms needed to be cleaned multiple times a day. By 12 noon, more than one toilet had big poo marks in it and the sinks had shaved hair and toothpaste and was just plain gross. It was bad enough to the point I did not shower the morning I left because it hadn’t been cleaned yet. The kitchen was also very untidy. My room was close to the bathroom and the walls are quite thin so I was up all night by the sound of the bathroom door opening and shutting.
