The smoke detector in the room was disconnected. The shower rose leaked at the fitting spraying water around. There was no room service breakfast or dinner available as advertised & as per the order forms in the room - which I was not told until I went to order in both cases. One of my reasons to stay at the property was the room service as I had lots of work to do.

Carpets are very grubby. The bathroom ledge hasn’t been dusted for years, and the information folder is taped up with grubby sticky tape. The air con is extremely noisy. Not worth the money

Everything was available and staff were very helpful, especially when I asked for a late checkout due to our flight delay. My only suggestion would be to put in a hand towel rail. I would stay here again and recommend it to anyone.

Rooms were a bit tired and run down, the property could do with some maintenance. Price and location were good. Staff were helpful.

Whilst quite dated, this hotel is very clean, good beds, average pillows and in a fantastic location for the price. Staff are very friendly and helpful. Have now stayed here 4 times with no complaints.
