I really love this hotel - the people, the bar area and the Siam restaurant, the rooms. I just do not like those horrible little plastic packets they provide for the shower gel and shampoo, and they are so hard to open! And this time a bit slack on the cleaning side - they left me with no toilet roll. But I think that was a one off. Otherwise, excellent value for money. Keep it up!

Wonderful Hotel
Lovely staff, very clean room. Had a meal in the Siam restaurant which was very good. Again lovely staff. Breakfast was very good, and done by writing your order, and complete table service re Covid. Once again very good staff. Covid taken seriously here. A very good hotel, would definitely recommend.

Hotel is great, we stayed in the bridal suite which was extremely comfy. Hotel staff were friendly on arrival. The only downfall of the hotel was there was no fridge which would be expected in that type of room, and also the cold tap comes out extremely slowly
