4/10 Fair

Lady was nice checking in. Unfortunately when we got to the room it was like they had placed a bed in a storage room. The bed looked old, marks all over walls & furniture, the makeshift cupboard looked like something out of the tip. The room had a door out onto the balcony which faced the main road which could be nice if it had some sort of curtain which would provide privacy and as the room was so tiny there was no privacy in the whole room. Left just after 8.30am, noone at reception to give feedback to.
