1/5 Terrible

Liked: Cleanliness, amenities
Spent two nights here, in a ground floor studio. Would have been fine, except for a massive issue with light pollution which resulted in the worst sleep experience I’ve ever had in a paid accommodation. And I travel I lot. Kitchen is off the bedroom, and there is no door. There are a row of windows in the kitchen that have no curtains, and there must be something outside that is lit up all night - I woke up thinking I had fallen asleep with the light on, it was that bright. But no. It’s permanent, and it’s all night long. After two nights of no darkness, I’m ragged and about to embark on a two hour drive. Unsure if any other rooms are affected, but this one is an absolute nightmare.

This is a very out dated run down property now. Beds are the worst ever with roll together. Bathrooms are small, tap just makes it into the basin however when you wash hands water goes all over bench…wifi does not work! Interesting that the store all there broken equipment, spare mattresses and just clutter in the underground parking where guest park….not a great look! Need serious amount of money pumped into this place.
