      It was a very good location

      The room stunk, it smelt musky. I assume that there is water damage in the walls as displayed in the corridor down stairs was bubbling. There was a plastic shower cap over our fire alarm in our room and the fire alarm downstairs was hanging apart. Needs alot of updating.

      The location was easy to find, room was clean and very spacious. The staff were friendly and reasonably helpful.

    • 5.4

      Location was good and outside appearance (lovely roses); having a lift v good, pool looked nice but weather didn't allow a swim in it; staff were helpful re how to get to places of interest etc.

      Beds were not the best and pillows much too hard; the door was stuck and hard to open, carpets and bathroom not so clean. I would not stay there again
