      Location

      Your day staff were extremely rude and unhelpful. We arrived to check in mid morning and were told the room would not be ready until 2pm, which would have been fine if your front desk staff, namely Lauren, did not treat our presence as an utter inconvenience. Upon checkout another staff member was most rude when we asked for help regarding public transport.

      Price and location

      I can see that it is in the process of being renovated..I loved my room it had everything I needed. It felt like home away from home. The only negative factor was that the walls were extremely marked and dirty but then I understand this may be why I could get accomodation in a great location for a very good price. I would be happy to stay again if I got a similar room.

      bathroom filthy, hot water tap leked when turned on, nearly scolded me as water spurted out from tap, also tap became very hot. Aircon leaked over entrance to unit, making tiles wet & slippery, walking water into room. Advised reception on leaving of above and completed feedback card.

      Location

      The advert through the internet site stated the bed was a "large double bed" and had a photo of a what looked like at least a King Size bed. We made our booking because of the bed size. We what I would describe a small double and at best a standard double it was definitely not large and definitely not what was in the picture of the room. We did complain but were told there were no larger beds. The room was also very tired looking with grimy net curtains, a towel rail that was falling off the wall a dent in the bedroom wall, a filthy exhaust fan in the bathroom and messy dirty access hatches to the roof spaces altogether not a wonderful experience.

      The first room we got was in the middle of a construction site and room was in bad condition. We got another room upon request and it was better. There are big differences between rooms.

      Queen bed was two singles together. Not a problem usually (lots of hotels do it) but where these beds joined was quite uncomfortable for sleeping.

      Noisy, needs double glazed windows. Also could do with updating the TVs in the rooms.
