Good, but let down by other guests
Lovely room, view and service, but let down significantly by lack of parenting and respect by some guests. On the 2nd and 3rd night a kids hockey team stopped who had no respect for other guests, playing hockey in corridors, slamming doors continually, shout and screaming from early afternoon until 10pm onwards. We are told this is a frequent issue for many weekends and will therefore look at other hotels in the area when revisiting to avoid a repeat.

They do the important things well
I was sick when I arrived. Check-in was fast and pleasant. I had a hot shower with great water pressure, then climbed in to a comfy bed with spotless sheets. The room was quiet and I slept like a log. Yes it’s a little dated but they do the important things well.

Fab stay
Had a fabulous stay in this hotel. We stayed in a 1 bedroom suite and it couldn't have been nicer. The only thing that was missing was a bar. The adjoining hotel does have one that can be used though.

Great location, comfy beds yummy breakfast!
Couldn't fault it - the hotel check in staff were awesome. Super helpful, putting us into a room on the same floor as our friends. Room was huge with two (very comfortable) queen beds for us and the kids. Spotlessly clean. Breakfast in the morning was included, brilliant and with a huge range of choices including a waffle maker, big hit with the kids. Would stay again for sure.

Place needs at least newer towels and sheets, those towels were like sand paper and the bed wasn’t the greatest, we pay the name of the hotel but not the stay 😓 and the tub still had hairs from the customer before, yikes!!!
