In room 630. Bed extremely hard so I didn't sleep at all for the entire night. The room is extremely small. The desk is chipped, worn and scruffy looking. Mirror covered in smears and badly scratched - looks scruffy. TV doesn't work. One bedside light doesn't work, the other is loose on the wall. Picture on the wall of a policemans helmet. Not really a bedroom picture certainly not in a designated 'quiet' room. Ripped wall paper. Damaged split wood work on and around window frame. Chipped bedside cabinates. Stained carpet. Oh and despite this quiet room meaning we don't get disturbed by the cleaners we get an early morning knock from them! Breakfast - spread not butter. Toast that's not been toasted and cold coffee. Two good points are the room and bathroom are spotlessly clean (apart from wardrobe mirror) and the location is superb. Nice touch to have free bottled water in the room too. I would stay here again but I would make sure I didn't have this room. We were very very disappointed.
