Disliked: Staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities
Worst place ever stayed in. Shabby property. Ants in shower from the 70s. No Sky reception. Room was not a suite which I'd requested. Bed was old & lumpy. Would not recommend.

4/5 Good

Liked the position, the balcony was nice , lovely self of pillows. Every thing was clean and room made up nice. However, road very noisy and shower over bath a bit dated and shabby and not easy to get in and out of. Bath needs to go and be replaced by modern shower box. Staff not very friendly on arrival or at anytime actually.
