                • Location and bar was great, the hotel limo to the airport was reasonable at $50 (two passengers, the front desk staff, Susan in particular, were extremely helpful as were the doormen. The room was clean and computers/printers were very efficiently set up. The restaurant/pub had a wonderful fish chowder, also highly recommended.

                  The bathroom was tiny and the door was about an inch from hitting the toilet.

                • Its location is perfect, hotel in very good state of decoration and the reception staff are great, very friendly. The rooms are comfortable and clean.

                  Service to be not great, bathroom has to be improved.

                • I liked the location, large and lovely park opposite, easy walking distance. The hotel is fine and the staff are friendly and efficient. Beds are very comfortable, pool and other facilities are excellent and most of all.

                  Checkout was very busy and the lobby was crowded, the room was a little small.
