Nice clean room, bed was very small & not the best quite rickety. Breakfast was a bag left at the door, items not really suitable for us & they didnt remove & take off price even after asking( brought same bag with everything we said we didn't like from.previous day) So mixed feelings i wouldnt stay again mind
