Booked and paid to stay here. Once checked in we were shown our room and it was totally run down. We asked if they had a better room and he said we had the best. So within five minutes our bags were back out the door as fast as they came in. It should be rated - 3

“If you are offered a room on the ground floor, make sure you push to be housed on the upper floor. The difference in room quality is considerable and the privacy that you feel is also far greater on the upper floor.”
