Wonderful location and view from our room. The staff on reception were very helpful. Unfortunately the room was disappointing, very run down and if it was anywhere else then I would say it wasn’t worth the money but its obviously all about the location.

The staff we encountered were excellent the room whilst clean and tidy was tired probably due for a facelift we were only there one night so weren’t in a position to know wether the overall experience would have been better than an average rating
