6/10 Good

It was ok
Overall the room was ok. What brought the experience down was that the room was very dusty, the kitchen cutlery was quite dirty, and the road noise and general noise from other guests. Bed was comfortable, staff very helpful, and lift access was handy with a suitcase.

Stayed for three nights with friends in a self contained double room. Room was a good size, comfortable beds and very clean. There was complimentary tea, coffee, milk, etc and a reasonably priced mini-bar with a few options. Bathroom was quite small but fine. Close to Sandy bay shops, Wrest Point, bus stops and right across from the water. We mostly walked. Front desk staff friendly and helpful.
