Lovely room, modern and spacious. Cleanliness was atrocious. I had to move the bed to retrieve an earring I dropped and I discovered dried vomit under the bed, which explains the unpleasant smell I couldn’t find that had annoyed me all night. There was also long blonde hair on the pillows (I have shoulder length black hair). Vomit was cleaned promptly when I bought it to their attention but there was no acknowledgement or apology and it was literally a carpet scrub of the soiled area while we were out. Car parks are tiny and strewn with huge nails and loose bits of sharp metal so watch out for flat tires too. Overall experience = way overpriced. Would have been happier if it was clean and safe.

good location.
Courteous reception. Size of unit very cramped. Bathroom tired with dated shower. Good quality linen and just good enough for an overnight stay.
