4/10 Fair

Clean but beds and service not up to standard.
I stayed two nights 28-30 June. Rm 636 had two broken beds which were reported and not resolved for my first sleepless night. It took a follow up the second evening to resolve. Not a proactive or apologetic engagement with staff. Very disappointed to pay a decent tariff for a hotel without a serviceable bed. Otherwise, the hotel was clean, fresh and had a comfortable feel. Not what you would reasonably expect.
