Rooms looking a little tired
Although clean and functional guests have fed back that some rooms are looking a little dated and would benefit from a minor refurbishment to bring them up to more modern standards. Rooms are also a little on the small size so if you are sleeping in a room at full capacity it may feel a little cramped.
Inadequate bathroom design
Bathrooms especially need refurbishing and completely refit. Guests have complained the shower area in particular needs to be redesigned from scratch.
