    Our bathroom was a separate room a cross the hall which we did not initially discover. This was a bit shocking at the time but once we found it it was fine.

    Great location, lovely friendly staff and very comfortable bed. AC was a great perk in 30 degree heat wave. Nice thick curtains blocked out light and room wasn’t too noisy considering mid stair way and road outside our window.
