4/10 Fair

No one at reception when we arrived, notice on door “ be back shortly”. Rang phone number on the notice, no response for 30 minutes, staff member was inside but forgot to take notice of the door. Unit was small, bed not made up properly chairs uncomfortable. Bed very hard, club chairs. Room looked tired and needs an update, not value for what we payed. We do not recommend this stay.
