4/10 Fair

Check bedding
There were blood stains on the mattress protector. The kettle was so stained on the inside it made you feel sick. I complained and they gave me a full refund and changed the cover and the kettle. Management were very apologetic and very helpful. The bathroom was very tiny and gaps in the window frames for bugs and air to come thru. The actual dining area and food was beautiful .

2/10 Poor

We stayed 2 nights and unfortunately our room had a interconnecting door, the 1st night the rubber trim around the front door was mising so it rattled all night and we could hear the other guests clearly, every cough, toilet break, sneeze, the next night we stuffed toilet paper in the door and a towel behind it but 12pm we had a drunk girl next door that had vomited and pooped herself, she finally passed out 12.30 but 2pm her friend came back and it was full on, we could here everything, at 2.30 am they were ringing up some guys to come over so we packed and left at 3am, we only had 2 hours sleep and had a 5 hour trip ahead but there was no point in staying. So would definitely warn against staying there

6/10 Good

The room was clean and quite OK, but the steps up to it felt a bit unsafe, and I felt it was overpriced compared to other places. The bistro at the hotel was great though.
