8/10 Very good

room was overlooking carpark and they need to invest into some curtains that block out light as the spotlights from the carpark light up the room at night like it is daylight ..

Great location.
Great location and loved the view. The triple room would be perfect for a family - spacious enough :) just be careful not to leave anything on the bed during the day … I lost my hair brush and think it got caught up in bedding as it was changed.
