We had a room facing the park with two beds. Only one chair on which to sit. I thought it might be considerate to have two chairs on which to sit. It seemed to be a bit of a problem just to find another chair for our 2 night stay.

I quite like this hotel, it’s middle of the road. Situated in a convenient position close walk to plenty of restaurants and shops. Quiet. The breakfast is very good, you can even make your own fresh juice. Paying for parking is a downer.

Good location, room modern, bathroom a bit dated. One of the two Hotel lifts failed during our stay (on a weekend) as was out for 2 days, hence long annoying delays in lift service. Surely they have a service contract to get a repair person in more quickly?
