Friendly staff, nice communal area and excellent breakfast. Bedroom itself was nice and a good size. Shower room was in need of minor repairs (e.g. missing pointing, old silicone seals)

Disliked: Cleanliness, amenities
On the positive side, the staff were very friendly and helpful. The room was very spacious and it was a bonus having a kitchenette. The shower was powerful and good. On the downside, the main thing was the room being too hot. We were on the third floor and stayed the last week in September so outside was showery and cool but we still kept our window open 24/7. Apart from the window there is no ventilation system in the room which was a particular problem in the shower/toilet area (I won't go into detail). The closet for storing clothes etc. Is big enough but on the top shelf there was rubbish kicking around. Obviously, being high, no one bothers cleaning it. This is one of a lot of small things which the Hotel needs to get on top of. For example, a fire alarm went off on the Thursday and we presumed it was the weekly test as it went off quite quickly but no-one told us this when we checked in. Other examples include the lift panel illustrates how to get in your room which is different to how you actually do it, a beer bottle left by the lift overnight (obviously by some other uncaring guest) was still there mid-morning. The breakfast bar is kept well supplied and staff were very good in clearing and cleaning tables. However the choice whilst varied is very minimal and I'm not sure how anyone with dietary issues would cope. These are all little things which doesn't help the Hotel, It's just the hot room which would stop us staying there again.

There is no AC! It was very hot while we were there and it became very uncomfortable. I wish the staff was trained to give advise on restaurants, entertainment, etc
