Greeted with a very offensive smell in our room. I'm surprised the cleaners never noticed it when preparing the room. Facilities otherwise very clean.

very ordinary
A cold, noisy, pokey room with very basic facilities. Not good value. And finding lipstick on the glassware doesn’t enhance the look.

It was okay the room could of been vacuumed a bit more. They didn’t provide me with milk for Sunday morning coffee which was not cool. No remote for the tv either.
