A great many visitors have been impressed by the wireless Internet provided at this hotel. As well as being free, the Wi-Fi here is reliable, strong and - best of all - lightning fast; just what you need in a business hotel.
Breakfast is well worth it
With a choice of hot dishes, cold meats, cheeses, cereals and breads, and as much tea and coffee as you like; the free breakfast proffered here ticks all the right boxes. The vast majority of guests also appreciated that it was available nice and early (from 6.30am).
Reception team make checking-in a breeze
Numerous travellers have observed that the highly efficient reception staff run a very tight ship when it comes to checking-in at this hotel. Very little waiting around required here.
Fitness centre is a let down
It is fair to say very few guests have been impressed by this hotel's fitness centre. Basic and then some.
Interiors feel a little dated
Many guests agreed that, whilst the lobby and most of the public areas appear quite modern, numerous other areas of the hotel look (and feel) a little old-fashioned. It is worth noting that, at the time of writing, a refurbishment process is underway.
Local area isn't so good
The majority of guests who've stayed here have been unimpressed by the rather isolated area in which the hotel is set. As well as having little to see or do close by, the local vicinity was also seen as being a little sketchy by some.
