It was ok, guy who checked us in was super nice, just feel for the price it’s a bit expensive for what you get. Lots of noise which I know is beyond hotels control but sounded at one point there were people out singing in the street. I didn’t bother getting out of bed to look. Bathroom ok. Could do with upgrading. Carpet looked as if it could do with a good clean. The fish and chip shop was a long long wait, then got order wrong. On check out the girl who served us looked like she could t be bothered but apart from that it was ok. Don’t think I would stay again purely because I feel for what you get it’s expensive
