2/5

  • Disliked: Cleanliness, amenities, property conditions & facilities

The rooms were ok but when they fitted new carpets they didnt adjust the door therefore making the door very hard to open. There was rubbish lying around the grounds and the garden or planted areas was full of overgrow weeds.
