    • Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service
    • Disliked: Amenities, property conditions & facilities

    We were in a "Deluxe" room which was too small by normal standards - cramped interior with things hemmed in! There was not much space to freely move around. There was no shower curtain to start with and the hotel provided a hot water kettle after reminders. Prompt and pleasing staff service with a good breakfast.
