"Quite a new experience"
We liked the look of the hotel from the web details, looked awesome . The hotel staff were superb, very friendly , professional and courteous. There were a few disappointments. On walking to the main entrance , you could see what looked like old discarded cabinets where people sat and smoked , sort of spoiled the initial impressions . Our room was at the very rear of the hotel, a seperate building. The room itself was fantastic , very well laid out, although the front sort of felt like a shop window, a huge glazed front section with a door opening outwards, with curtains that came across the front for privacy, this was quite frustrating trying to get in and out of the room and not leave the curtains slightly openin leaving your personal possessions on full view . It was also slightly frustrating being a good 5 minute brisk walk away from the hotel with no obvious rear entrance , meaning a walk right round the perimiter was required, sometimes in very cold rain . The restaurant was well laid out, although the food range fairly limited and although nice fare, was not of a massively high standard, although was presented well and again served by excellent staff.
We felt that for a hotel of this size and price , there could have been more on offer , no entertainments at all, a downstairs bar that was not easy to find , rather glum , and down a corridor littered with goods cages and other bits and pieces , no pool
The room was nice, the staff excellent , but some things were odd
