  • Disliked: Amenities, property conditions & facilities

The place is tired and needs refreshing. The staff are equally uninspiring - nothing seemed to come naturally for example wiFi which is free was not offered and required vouchers etc. The room felt tatty and the bathroom was unwelcoming with silicone along bath etc peeling off. Pity. It’s in a prime location with good access to parking and Centre - Accor could do much better
