Mr Potts
Nice to see the property being updated intetnally, my room was pleasant but uncomfortably warm saying that fan and aircon unit was provided. Shame the bathroom was dated. The new mini fridge in the unit was not very effective. The meal deal was great but breakfast was poor!. Overall not a bad stay but way overpriced.
