For a big chain that is usually great.. not a great stay.. really dirty light switches and gross build up in shower.. the place (especially the gyn) needs a refresh:: staff polite but a few issues with keys that weren’t addressed in my whole week stay

Standard accommodation with some friendly staff. Overall a pleasant stay but the lack of attention to the small stopped this from being a more enjoyable stay.

The property was close to all amenities with good views of the city. The room was adequate nothing exciting, the in house entertainment was sparse: old TV no extras.

I have been staying here over more than 18 months now. Has become much more expensive and the property is very tired and needs attention. My bed was uncomfortable and the pillows were so old they were like blocks of concrete. The shower handle was old and corroded so it was stiff and difficult to use and adjust, so the shower was either scalding or cool. The bathroom was old and the grout needed replacing

We got what we paid for, unfortunately we had to cancel our stay earlier in our holiday due to not having enough rooms to extend our stay by a day.
