Travelled with partner
Liked: Cleanliness
Disliked: Property conditions & facilities
Had to request a room change as the first was freezing and draughty (in the middle of winter) opening onto an outdoor courtyard area. The surrounding rooms were completely dark, the entire section apparently otherwise completely vacant. The second room was inside the hotel however the heating was inoperative and the thermostat indicated a temperature of 15° inside. Was offered a space heater which i was asked to pick up from reception. The shower was also freezing as the hot water was only vaguely warm, didn't need to use the cold tap at all.
