Suited my need as i would expect from this level of Hotel
Colin, gb2 night business trip

Good but needs a lot of thought to be warm.
Bit further out from town than advertised. Menu in bistro not very exciting or encouraging. Settled for tea and toasted chicken sandwich. Breakfast plentiful and fresh, served by two delightful ladies who were friendly cheerful and chatty. While bar area is clean it feels cold and dull and a place one would like to spend a lot of time in. Room very clean and most comfortable bed I've encountered in a hotel.

Good 6.0
Our room 137 was awful, two of the beds the mattresses must have been years old and so uncomfortable and the knocking from the plumbing kept me and my partner up most of the 2 nights we were there it was so loud. the food from the bistro was very average for the price...otherwise the staff where friendly and helpful and room was clean. unfortunately I wouldn't stay here again....

Samantha, ie2 night family trip
Good 6.0
Disappointed with our stay. We arrived at 3:30pm to check in and were told that none of our 4 rooms were ready. We understood that check in was at 4pm so asked if 1 room of the 4 was ready and we could just out our bags in that room. However, she said no room was ready. I don't understand how they were going to get all the rooms finished in half an hour. We left our bags at reception. We were attending a wedding in another hotel so it was annoying we couldn't freshen up in our room. We returned back at 2am where the porter checked us in and we went up to the room. The room was clean and nicely decorated, however it was very cold and the duvet was light enough that we used two on the one bed. It wasn't even a cold night. Check out was early at 11. It confused me that check out was so early yet no rooms were ready at 3:30pm for check in. Overall a disappointing stay but price was good.
