Staff were friendly but not overly helpful
-No tea/coffee/water in the bedroom- can't think of the last time this happened in a hotel
-Generally grubby and worn looking (bed covers, around the shower, cracks in the ceiling, back off the remote etc)
-Very little lighting in the room and we could only find one plug (so even less)
- toilet didn't flush properly and was constantly getting clogged.
- 4'6" bed: not used to it at home so certainly don't want it on my holidays!
- noise outside was really loud (until about 5am)
To be honest, I was really shocked at what was being charged considering that there were basic things missing. I wouldn't have minded if the price had been €30-€40 less. If you don't mind all of the items I have mentioned I suggest asking for a room with a larger bed (the room next to ours had one) and facing the front (there is a lane way with a nightclub down the side).
