    Good 6.0
    Not impressed.
    The room was very small and the walls had scuff marks on them! The bath was a disgrace! My daughter and l were both looking forward to having a relaxing bath but decided against it because the bath was in terrible condition as it desperately needed to be resurfaced! So then we thought we would watch a movie only to find out that they do not provide, pay to view movies. One good thing was that the staff were very good.
