It was close to where we needed to be

The shower didn't work so had to have a bath however lot of black stuff came out of the taps! The toilet cistern leaked all over the floor too. The window had a half centimetre gap causing a draft and a lot of noise from outside. There was no WIFI except in the reception area not to mention the TV that was out if the arc with no freeview.

Big room

Torn sofa and windows that I couldn't close (there was a gap between the sliding panel), making the room quite noisy (wind and bus traffic)
