The staff were aggressive and threatening so we paid for the... More

The shower was little more than a dribble and the tubing on the shower head was too short to reach the holder so you couldn't shower properly. There were used towels in the bathroom and also the sink was falling off. There was no duvet cover on the duvet.... More
