2/10 Poor

Just one thing spoilt it - noise
The staff were very helpful. The room was very clean and new. However, all of the flooring are tile. There is no soundproofing between the room door and corridor. Hotel Guests were coming and going until 2 pm. I think also there was a cleaning cupboard next to my door constantly being accessed. At 3.20 am two bins of some sort were relocated outside the window of the hotel room. Real shame could not fault it other than you cannot get any sleep.
