Stay here, for business or pleasure.
I really enjoyed staying here for so many reasons: the price, the location, the standard of my room, the comfort, the interior and grounds of the hotel. There were two small points that could be improved, although neither of these would deter me from staying again. In fact, I'd be keen to. 1. At both check in and check out there weren't enough staff to deal with the amount of guests. This resulted in delays to everyone in the queue. It became more of a problem for me at check out, as I needed to leave for a business meeting but was stuck in a slowly moving queue. 2. I noticed there were some old stains on almost all my bath towels. They weren't dirty, just discoloured but it was still off-putting and I didn't want to use them. Perhaps buying new towels would make a difference.

The hotel was under construction. Drilling and hammering meant my late checkout was pointless.

Stayed here a few times and hotel always very good. In middle of some renovation which had no impact on stay. New bar area big open space lacking a bit of ambience but main issue would be bar staff. Despite having plenty of bodies behind bar couldn't cope when busy. Had to stop serving for 15 mins to catch up. We gave up and went elsewhere. Hope this gets sorted out, good bar manger required!
