OK for budget place, but surprised breakfast not included. Bed linen could have been ironed but everythingelse passable. Had no light in bathroom, but was fixed next day. Super view, but wished the'd switched lights off around pavilion, on all night. On the whole it could have done with sprucing up a little and new bath towels.
