Expected more!!
The hotel needs some repairs and cleaning, dirty carpet everywhere and poor general maintenance, ie painting and damp. It very much felt like the hotel was trying too save money everywhere. One towel in the bathroom, very cheap loo paper. I also be had to ask for the aircon/heating to be turned on even though it looked like it was on in the room!
