Disliked: Cleanliness
No warning that there was a fee for parking. The room was ok however the tv didnt work well the connectuon for the sky receiver was broken and kept falling out. There was tobacco in the bed so not sure if sheets changed from the previous people staying. The bathroom was disgusting, there was blood splatters in several places on the floor and poo splatter in the toilet abd under the seat, hairs abd a film in the bath abd the hot water was luke warm. If the bathroom had been clean the room would have been great
