No criticisms for the price but watch out for the squeaky clean shower trays which are a tad slippery. Thanks Sandra and Steve (I think)

Nice clean room, but I felt it was a little overpriced considering it was somewhat dated. The night I was there the room only had one very small fan heater, yet it was freezing outside. Not a comfortable breakfast that morning!!
