4/10 Fair

Wasn't the best place i have stayed I got told on the day that hidden fees needed to be paid for pet cleaning, i wasnt happy to find out after i had arrived. I called to ask prior and got told no that no extra fees would apply for having a dog as it was included in the room price. The doors upstair would bang so loudly upstairs constantly waking us up or our dog up in a fright. The sliding door to outside was so difficult to open and close, let the reception know but they said I'll take note of it In the morning at 0730 the leaf blower was working right outside the room.
