8/10 Very good

All staff were super helpful. Keycard lanyard made it a lot less of a concern whether you brought it with you (more difficult to forget).

6/10 Good

The double ensuite was a suitable sized room but it didn’t have the appropriate amenities. A fridge in the room, nicer bed sheets, a bin besides the one in the bathroom, poor water pressure and inconvenient sized bathroom - no place to hang a towel or put clothes down to change.
