Business traveller
Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, property conditions & facilities
The reception and lounge area were spacious and comfortable. The rooms were a bit small but manageable. Not enough lights in the room so was a bit dark. The staff was excellent and so very helpful and always with a smile and friendly. Breakfast was nice and plentiful. The kitchen was closed during lunch so it made it a little difficult to work from there in the afternoon. Overall nice place, clean and again a great staff.

Liked: Cleanliness, amenities
Disliked: Staff & service
The staff were rude and unprofessional. At 2am one of their staff came into the room using the key they had and as soon as they heard us they left. They were smoking outside the bedroom and talking out loud until 1am.
