    • Liked: Staff & service, property conditions & facilities, room comfort
    Nice but a little work needed

    It was very nice in regards all the wee extras and little touches, ie welcome drinks and complementary coffee, the service was attentive and friendly, but we found the room needed to be cleaner. There were black scuff marks on walls and bathroom edges and there was dust. As a result we didn’t want to eat the wee treat left in the room
