    There was nothing unique about the property. It was over priced for what it was and for the facilities. I must say the toilet paper was probably the worst I have ever struck obviously the cheapest on the market. Cleaning could do with a shake up as well as cobwebs on light fittings and windows and dusting and vacuuming behind side tables has not been attempted for a considerable time. The old now not in use blind fittings could be removed now as they are not in use
