ixed experience
Chelsea in reception was great. Heat in room unbearable so got us a room change but unfortunately no WiFi on move. Bar is lovely and so is the food but service is disorganised chaos. Not enough staff, waiting long time for drinks, orders mixed up. Breakfast good too. 😀

The pictures on the booking looked better then in reality. The hotel is old and in need of a good renovation or even a good deep clean. Walls are paper thin.
