4/10 Fair

Great location, disappointed with super narrow and crazy long hallway that was so tight when passing other guests. We were given the farthest room, our kettle had ? Mould so was not usable and stains on the curtains and underside of lounge cushions (we used the pullout sofa bed). Staff were very friendly, bathroom was very clean and the location was excellent.

6/10 Good

We arrived 8:30pm and the sofa bed wasn’t made for the kids, pillow had red stains showing through the pillow cases, we found cigarette ash and food crumbs on the sofa bed. The mattress on the sofa bed didn’t have a mattress protector and we were only supplied a sheet to cover it. It would have been nicer to have a cleaner bed/sofa bed to sleep in.
