EIRLYS, gb1 night trip
Good 6.0
the premium price charged due to a sporting event was not justified. The bathrooms are extremely snall & need updating ie., mixer taps that blend hot/cold water. existing taps run boilig half side & cold other side. Breakfast buffet was mediocre with poor fruit selection.

Teresa, gb1 night trip
Very good 8.0
The only issues we're the rooms window did not close all the way and made for a very noisy and cold evening. Also although the partner gym was extremely nice it was inconvenient and there were no hours listed for the gym. The weekend hours opened later and could have impacted travel plans
Richard, us2 night trip
Good 6.0
Everything was just very average.
The best bit about the room was the view apart from that don’t expect a whole lot. Staff were friendly, food was good. Room had couple of issues (broken tap, uncomfortable mattress, broken lamp & decorated from 20 year ago) just needed updating.
