Liked: Location, good spot for pick up and drop off points.

Disliked: Staff were extremely rude and even when I went to the effort of emailing the manager she didn't respond, even over a week later I am yet to receive acknowledgement. Music was far too loud in the bar downstairs with had a total of 10 people in, including the staff. Room was literally shaking from the noise.

Liked: Location. Good friendly staff. Girl on the desk was very helpful.
