4/5 Good

Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities
The staff were friendly and responsive. The room was comfortable, wifi worked well, food was pretty good. Beds were ok, but rather tired and creaky!

2/5 Poor

Travelled with family
Liked: Staff & service
The hotel really needs updating, the general disrepair and cleanliness needs sorting. Plug sockets that dont work, dirty and clogged bath tub, drinking glasses provided dirty, headboards and carpets have stains on, pillows/pillow covers smell musty and probably havent been changed in years and the window would not close properly ... would say this is more like a cheap Hostel than a hotel!

Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, property conditions & facilities
Lovely room four poster, tiny shower but fairly big bathroom, shower mat was not very clean, but otherwise cleanliness was excellent, very comfortable mattress and clean sheets, very large choice of breakfast fresh fruit all types of cereal and choice of cooked breakfast which seemed a bit odd when we were advised that the hotel couldn’t offer evening meals due to covid? The only food available was a takeaway which they would have brought to the hotel. Seemed to be short staffed as the receptionist was also the waiter, forgot to ask his name but he was very friendly, the hotel architecture is amazing.
