The noise from the bar makes it hard to sleep. Tough for the kids to sleep also

  • Disliked: Cleanliness, amenities

The property is ok, but it is old. The plug in the wash basin in the bathroom would not release, so the water would not go down, so comnsequently the dirty water stayed there, and was like that until a handyman came to fix it the next day, and then he did it with a knife and left it in the basin, and the basin was still dirty, he hadn't cleaned it. The bed was also made of very roughly. I wont be staying there again
