    Needs some TLC
    Not so good. Arrived at 2.15pm and they were still doing something in the room and continued while we were waiting. The general state of the room was a bit average too. Bed was uncomfortable -- we think it was a king made from two singles pushed together. Very expensive too for what we got.
