2/10 Poor

The whole experience was terrible. The room was tiny, outdated, with leaking taps and beds from the 70’s. Paint peeling off the shower floor, which was in desperate need of repair. The railing on the smokers deck is wobbly and unsafe. The manager kept trying to come into the room with tradesmen, while the baby was sleeping, and my daughter getting dressed. His dog roamed freely in and out of the room. A totally unpleasant experience over all. We couldn’t wait to get out of there.
