I stayed in room 301. It is tiny and dismal. Gloomy with dark decor and very little natural light and dim room lighting so you can barely brighten it enough to read.. By contrast the bathroom is bright and modern so I shifted a chair in there. The pillows were hard and uncomfortable. Also why is the Wi-Fi restricted to the ground floor?
It is a pity as the staff were nice and the breakfast and meal were good BUT the depressing bedroom would put me off going back. It is very over priced for a room of that size and quality.
