    Property condition


    • Liked: Staff & service
    • Disliked: Cleanliness, amenities, property conditions & facilities

    This property is clearly run down. The first room we were given had a draught and was really cold. The window didn’t shut and heating wasn’t working. We were given another room - again heating in main room not working, the sink was dirty and the taps were broken so turned every time you tried to open the hot water. Given a room overlooking the high street which meant lots of noise from cars and people. This is clearly not a 4 star

    Noisy room

    My overall experience was good with exception of the fact that I had along day following returning to Greece and an overnight in Athens airport prior to my connecting flight,the room I was given 429 was directly next to the lift that was going up and down all night so not a good sleep !!! Which is why I booked with yourselves to get a good night sleep.Also the iron had obvs failed its test and had a sticker saying do not use !!! Staff very friendly and welcoming.breakfast exceptional .
