The website claims 'unique boutique style - with attention to detail'.
The bedroom was dirty, with yellow/orange flakes around the door frames and white marks/stains on the coffee table. The bathroom has large sandstone tiles and could look good if the pink mould between the tiles was cleaned with a toothbrush and bleach. The leaky shower and mould made the bathroom feel dirty.
Our overall impression was that it needed a good clean and coat of paint, plus a new mattress, as the current one is also very lumpy.
Not quite the standard I was expecting for a Superior Suite.
