        Had stayed at the hotel for one night two weeks previous and found it just as good both times. Our two bedroom apartment was just lovely. Had more than we needed. would not hesitate to recommend or stay again ourselves.

      • Older travelers

        A pleasant, comfortable hotel, situated right in the city center.

        Guests have 30 minutes complimentary internet access daily, with the unexpected restriction however that you must use those minutes in one session, so when you log off after 2 minutes you've lost the balance. Given the pricing of this hotel one might find this a bit strange.

      • Family with children

        We booked a two bedroom apartment which was beautful. Very spacious and comfortable. We are booked in again later in the month and are looking forward to our stay.

        Location, Gym & Pool facilities, room layout.

        I requested an extra night & this was agreed at reception however 2 days later I was advised the hotel was full & I would be relocated.

      • Group of friends

        The service was brilliant. We had to change our travel plans due to road closures and bad weather so returned to the Heritage. Staff are so friendly and obliging. We will definitely return.

        Everything I needed was in the room. I had only one night but the staff on arrival and departure was showed what true hospitality can do especially after flying in from another country with no rest. 'Just being Nice!'

      • Family with children

        Very generous sized and well presented room-we stayed in the 3 bedder. Staff very helpful/friendly -stored our considerable luggage and vehicle for 3 days even though we were not returning to the hotel on this trip.
