        1. my favorite is the morning breakfast. Lots of choices 2. staffs are very polite and helpful. Even cleaner are well-mannered

        after the renovation: 1. shower is not as strong as before 2. hard to squeeze the shower gel 3. strong wind coming through the small gaps of the window 4. The heater-hard to get the right temperature. Makes me feel cold 5. wifi should be free

      • Older travelers
        5.4

        Not a lot

        Narrow beds. Soulless bar/restaurant.V.poor food.Shower V.unattractive (mould, missing tiles) If the hotel car park is full, the hotel offers free pass to the Pay and Display car park adjacent but this is not made clear anywhere until you have paid and displayed and then go to check in.

        Polite and helpful staff. ease of checkin and checkout.

        The hotel allegedly provided an evening meal. The food was appalling. It was overpriced microwaved rubbish. There was one man desperately trying to provide the 'meals'. It was a dreadful start to the holiday.

        Had to wait 45 minutes for a meal. Staff complained that they had neither the facilities or number of staff to carry out a good service in the dining room

        The hotel was just ok, nothing special. The staff was friendly.

        The food offered for dinner and breakfast was a joke. It was actually below high school cafeteria grade food. Absolutely horrible and expensive. There was also a constant water leak that ran all night that made it difficult to sleep. It may have been the toilet in either the room above, or next door, but no matter what, it was annoying and difficult to get any rest.

      • Older travelers
        8.2

        Staff very helpful and all very smartly dressed.

        Sofa in room in desperate need of a clean.

        Heating did not work, breakfast was very poor, at least it was £45 now £90 it is a joke.
