    Nothing.

    Door security chain removed. No welcoming book. Bed quilt filthy with ingrained stains. Rusty light fittings. Small tv sitting on stand with castors which was sitting on suitcase stand. (Unsafe ). Pieces of villaboard chipped off in many areas.Room needs a complete renovation. Tariff far too high for such poor accommodation. Would never have gone there if photos had reflected the true state of building and our room. Sent owner an email outling concerns. Couldn't be bothered replying.

    Hot tub in the room was great. The beds are comfortable . The manager is very friendly.

    It is a little rundown. The shower doors were off the rollers and it was very high step in and out making it dangerous on slippery floor.
