Positive Reviews

Good location with plenty of restaurants

The hotel is very conveniently located near to local bars and restaurants so guests can easily have a walk out on an evening and find somewhere to eat and drink. Many people have been happy with the location and would definitely stay again should they be in the area.

24/7 reception

However big or small the problem, the receptionist is always there. Guests who have had an issue and have called, have always been greeted by a person and had their issues resolved.

Great fitness club passes given

As part of the price when staying in the hotel, fitness passes are given for a nearby club which has excellent facilities. Many guests who have taken advantage of this option have been very impressed and highly rate the club nearby.

Negative Reviews

Filthy furnishings in the rooms

There are lots of people reviewing this hotel and also the furnishings in the rooms. The chairs are torn and sunken, carpets are dirty, bedding stained and curtains hanging limp. The hotel is in need fo a revamp.

Loud extractors in the bathroom

The extractors in the bathrooms reviewed are very loud which has kept previous guests up at night when they have heard other rooms through the walls. The walls are apparently quite thin which means noise is heard throughout the day.

Two tables at breakfast

The breakfast offered is continental and the only hot food is toast. The seating area is limited and previous visitors have explained the best way to approach breakfast is to go elsewhere as it is terrible.
