Rated as 2 out of 5


Rather unfortunate that the cleanliness in the room was quite average and this was done by the staff who cleaned on Saturday, duvet was thrown on to crumped up dirty sheets, papers still on the floor. The shower had a very bad smell as if the sewage system was not working, had to spray with my perfume. I had a long day on a Friday and wanted to wake up a bit late, despite my placing a DnD sign on my door, the manager himself called me to leave the room because they had to clean it. In all the hotels I have stayed in world wide that was a first for me. So that Ramada guests cannot wake up late you need to wake up early and get out of the room.
