poor”

Within the first 5 minutes of being there, I used the bathroom which has a sliding barn door which offers absolutely no privacy. Upon opening the door the inside finger hold had such a sharp edge and the barn door opened so far back behind the wall with no space my finger got stuck and ended up with a very large gash on my finger. Upon bringing it to the staff attention they sent the maintenance guy to fix it and his "Fix" was to just leave the door open since it does not do much..... No other offer was given to me or attempt to resolve the matter.

Handy little surprise ”

Apart from the photos on Agoda being different to the actual hotel it was local to Disneyland. Free shuttle, pool & spa and buffet breakfast. Newly renovated bathroom. I would say the rooms could be cleaned a lot more thoroughly, they were very dusty and the first room we got checked into wasn't even cleaned from the previous people.
