Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, property conditions & facilities
The property is spacious, very central to everywhere, good location. However, there is a problem in the placement of the in-room amenities such as glasses and cups. They are put in far end of a low cupboard where I have to basically lie on the floor in order to get the glasses and cups out. Also, the bar fridge is leaking water although it is not very serious.
