Good 6.0
I believe I asked for a room in a quiet area of the hotel but the continual noise from the road was very disturbing. The staff were helpful and the beds comfortable.

As usual we had an excellent stay here. Only one slight problem........ the height of the toilet!! It was so low - looked (and felt) as though it was a child's toilet!!

Time to refurbish
First room we were allocated had no electricity. After 40 minutes they changed our room at our request. In the second room the hall switches for the bathroom and hall did not work. We didn't bother to report that. I could also see through gaps in the door into the hallway. Unsure of UK fire legislation and wondered if the rooms met the UK fire code.

My booing was for my daughter and all was well. She very much enjoyed her stay, the staff were wonderful and the breakfast was a great value for money. I stayed there before and when my daughter needed to be in that area I knew exactly were to book!

Rubbish hotel
Terrible room cracked sink toilet did not flush Badly needed a refurbishment Stayed executive room had to pay for executive lounge which was very sparse Food (snacks) very poor quality,
Nick, gb3 night trip
Fair 4.0
Room was OK but with a great view. My issues were around room service that apparently finishes at 11pm and yet at 1050 we were told we could only order "snacks". The bar says it's open till late for hotel guests yet was shut before we got back to out room, hence the room service request.
