Our room had great view, but seems not very many do. Our room had plenty of space for our family of 4
For hotel rate, you would think the "complimentary" breakfast would include hot chocolate.
It was cheap
No major issues, you get what you pay for, the basics
Very good position, free parking available.
Bathroom very cold no heating
the shower was very poor
Nice room comfortable and clean.
No lift to top floor. cold shower. very bad bed.
A pleasant hotel to stay at with friendly waiting staff.
Chaotic check-in / check-out, with original e-mail reservation lost. Then tried to charge a higher rate, and capped it all by telephoning the next day to make a 'no show' charge for not having arrived as booked!
Bedrooms were adequately furnished, & very clean
Reception areas are in need of refurbishment, staff were polite but didn't provide the service you would expect. The Bar was closed at 10pm, and we were told we could take drinks to our room!
Hotel was clean and rooms had been newly refurbished.
No information in room of fire exits and meal availability. No warning about scalding hot water. Poor food at breakfast and poor availability after a coach party had blitzed the breakfast room. Quality of food was poor. Tv had hardly any choice of programmes despite the only information in the room advertising all the available tv channels, we could only receive about 4. Room was located at back of hotel up many stairs and corridors.
The internet booking was not registered in the hotel and that was really bad. Curtains in dinningroom can get attention, little sloppy.
