No good for older people. No lift. Stairs a bit much. Some keys were difficult to use on outside door. Mattress of sofa bed was dreadful.

6/10 Good

Nice and close to everything even though building works were happening across the road it was actually nice and guiet. The room was ok, the bed was comfy, the size of the room was great. It was just old. The flooring is like a vinyl and the bed is on wheels and would move across the room during the night and the bedhead would fall lol. The crockery and cutlery were light on, no bowls and plastic picnic drinking cups. We made contact with reception staff and they rectified it very quickly but it was all a little odd. The staff were lovely.
