"OK"

"Good Morning, thought it was an outdated room... It had a smell which bothered the other person in our party of 3.The lamp shades needed to be cleaned, very dusty and I didn't dare take them off as I feared I would break one..So an allergy pill cured the short stay we were there.. Just also we were in room 159 the railing coming down the stairs very shaky so may want to take a look at that... The staff at desk were very pleasant and helpful... have a great day.."
