It is clean, with friendly staff and nice facilities. My girlfriend and I had a private room on the top floor.
Everything was great and we were really impressed with the en-suite bathroom.
However there wass one little problem. The door handle to the bathroom was faulty and when we returned in the evening we found that we couldn't open the bathroom door. The night staff were friendly but couldn't do anything. We resorted to using a bathroom 2 floors down as there were none on the other floors.
The next morning staff gave us a key to the room alongside ours and were apologetic.
I hope that in future they check that rooms are suitable for guests before offering them. It was clear from damage around the door handle that this door had been damaged long before our stay.
This was only one problem and otherwise we enjoyed our stay.
