can only say ok
room freezing unless radiator on full, window propped open by a flat pebble, no heating in bathroom, mould on sealant around tiles, fan noisy and dusty and the room smelt like your old granny - no offence gran i meant your old house!
we only slept in the room which made it bearable.
'olympic suite' something to see: breakfast as it said 'help your self' to what you want and as much as you want: but one morning...' special promotional event on' so guests not allowed in here. No signs , warning, reasoning or apology given and had to look a bit stupid wandering into the 'event' looking for my breakfast.
still waiting for my coffee in the bistro form the one night we did eat here! a
from reading name badges it seemed the more pay you were on the less you cared for the customer.
