  • Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service

Location is excellent and the staff is pretty nice. My coworker and I came back because we stayed here 3 years for previous training. Back then they served a hot breakfast that you could order. Now they serve a "continental" breakfast aka assorted cold crap not worth the cash you spend on it. Unfortunately that was the reason that we chose to come back - because the breakfast was great then. Back then the room was a bit drafty, now it comes with a dyson because it's downright cold. My coworkers room had a busted window latch so his room was colder. The electric radiator heat wasn't very effective. Paint was peeling in some areas especially the bathroom ceiling. Seemed almost like the cleaning folk were trying to avoid giving me towels. Guessing they're in the cutting corners stage of ownership. Three years ago seemed like they were trying to be a 4+ star boutique hotel, now it seems like they're ok with letting things go to 3.

    A little disappointing

    The chap who showed us to our room was extremely helpful and polite. The mattress was the hardest I have ever had to sleep on and so didn't sleep much. No milk was left in our room and so I had to get re-dressed and go to reception as there was no answer when I telephoned. No Wifi. Didn't feel worth what we paid. I don't like doing this as I have never left a bad review but it was disappointing
