Bed was okay, new-ish mattress and clean sheets. Room smelt like strong curry type cooking. It was 4/5 stars until I saw that there was black hair in the bathroom sink....yuck.

    • Disliked: Amenities, property conditions & facilities

    Hotel had three different names so clearly has been recently taken over. The lift had a very strange smell. My room had a window with a large crack through it and one window which was too high up to be closed. Dated decor, marks on the walls which need to be repainted. The bed was large and comfortable and the room attendants were friendly and did their best with the room turn down. Good location for restaurants.
