Greeted with a very offensive smell in our room. I'm surprised the cleaners never noticed it when preparing the room. Facilities otherwise very clean.

Disliked: Cleanliness
very ordinary
A cold, noisy, pokey room with very basic facilities. Not good value. And finding lipstick on the glassware doesn’t enhance the look.
