            Kettle etc. the bathroom was tired and dated.

            Poor service and room small, noisy. Music from downstairs playing eary in the morning and unimaginative menu overpriced.

          • Ideal location for my needs and frequent bus services to all attractions and taxis very quick and reasonable. A very enjoyable stay and the decoration is a little tired. The staff are fantastic, very friendly and helpful, public rooms are very luxurious and impressive.

            Awful decor staircase, not worth the money and the bed was also very uncomfortable. Food was quite expensive.

            The hotel is looking a bit tired in places and outside of building could be more inviting. Caused bed to get very uncomfortable during the night.

          • The public area was modern and the hotel was clean and tidy and felt welcoming. Staff were friendly and happy, room was spotless, the breakfasts were first class and the food generally excellent.

            Awkward car park and the bed was very uncomfortable, inner spring and bad quality. After complaining to the reception the problem was cured and shower was a bit poor &. The waiter was rude, pool was cold and dirty.
