Not a great stay
Very hot and noisy room. Had a balcony which was lovely but couldn’t leave the doors or windows open due to the noise outside. Check in not inside the hotel and neither was breakfast, they were over the road at much nicer George hotel. Facilities ok in the room, but not overly clean. Cobwebs on ceiling, dust on unit and filthy skirting boards. Bathroom clean though. Wouldn’t stay again
