Dissatisfied stay
Rooms and all associated area’s were tired and badly in need of refurbishment. Meals were terrible. Breakfast was a joke. One waitress on duty trying to do everything. It could be a lovely hotel if it was run properly and had some proper cleaning done.

Comfy beds but too hot!
Lots of good points with this hotel but a couple of things made it not so perfect. Easy check-in with a friendly member of staff, in fact all the staff were very friendly and helpful The room was well decorated and the beds were comfy. BUT - I'd booked this hotel as having air-con in the room - this was specifically stated - and there was none; the room was so hot overnight due to warm weather that it was difficult to sleep and, as is often the case, the window was restricted opening - not good. Yes, a fan was provided, which helped, but not enough when I was expecting air con. The floors all around were very creaky so the bedroom was noisy, whenever anyone moved in the corridor outside or in the room above. Breakfast was fine, as were the evening meals, and when we had a problem it was dealt with to our satisfaction. If there had been aircon this would have been a completely favourable review!
