Thank you for your review I can only apologise for the experience you had to endure; we clearly did not meet with your expectations. On the night in question, the hotel was fully booked, unfortunately, the room allotted to you was one of our older style rooms yet to be refurbished. We apologize for the inconvenience, and your feedback will most certainly be used to make improvements for the future. Kind regards Frankie Manners – Operations Manager
