    The location and parking were the only reasons we booked this hotel. However, it is clean and fairly comfortable, the breakfast is good and the reception staff pleasant and helpful.

    Creaky, stuffy and outdated. We stayed here in 1989 (!) - it wasn't great then and has not improved. For example, there is a tatty cabinet in the bar for the TV which has dirty marks on it. Extraordinary!

    Location, Pillows

    Other than that very average. Ordered room service two hours before the last ordering time, they rung back and said actually not serving food..... Poor service. For me "it done the job".

    location

    The windows couldn't open more than a few centimeters and the air condition did not work. A letter telling that the ac does not work is not enough!

    Our spacious double room was situated on the 1st floor in the corner which meant two sets of windows so lots of light pouring in which we loved. We also had the view of the park. The bed, the pillows and the duvet were supercomfy which ensured a good night sleep. Coffee, tea and biscuits selection spot on. The bathroom was fairly newly renovated, good water pressure. Yummy yummy breakfast. Perfect location and beautiful hotel, wish we could've stayed longer than just one night.

    It's not the hotel's fault but someone pulled the fire alarm around 11.30pm so we had to evacuate. there was no guidance so if there was an actual fire, not sure how they would deal with it.

    Location is good. Check in staff very helpful.

    Very noisy outside, until at least 4am. Wardrobe doors very squeaky and you could hear the room next door opening and closing it. Poor quality of breakfast. Disappointed with room sizes as we booked 3 all the same price but very different in size. Not very good value for money.

    The room was shabby, no beside lights, cramped, grubby bathroom. To be fair we have had better accommodation on a previous visit but this was pretty grim.

    The lobby, breakfast and bar areas were stylish and relaxing

    The room was quite basic and dated compared to the pictures seen online.

    The Bed and pillows were amazing, such a good night sleep.

    The noise from the bar across the road, quietened down around 3pm, but once asleep was ok

    The rooms have absolutely no air conditioning at all which is fine for the winter months but summer is reasonable over here and to not have such a basic amenity was incredibly disappointing. The rooms are also very tired, old furniture, worn fittings and finishes. The hotel was sub-par for the price paid.
