I found that the cleanliness of the toilets and sinks themselves was fine but the rest of the toilet rooms was not ! Behind the doors, which you will only see if you are in the room with the door closed, the floors were dirty! Behind/under the sinks the walls and plumbings were dirty/dusty. In my room the decorative mouldings on the wall around my bunk were dirty as was the steps of the unused bunk ladder behind the cupboard. The sofas in the lounge were filthy under the cushions.
