2/10 Poor

This hotel went out of business but Expedia didn't let me know this. Had to book somewhere else at the last second for a vastly inflated price.

Why is there no at least access to microwave for two adults to use?

No key to enter the rental so had to wait around, despite phoning beforehand. No heating in our room.

Great place to stay
Cant fault anything. The man on reception was very customer focused and helpful. He went out of his way to help.The photos do not do the room justice. Very clean, spacious and comfortable. Would highly recommend

Two things could be improved: - the possibility of opening windows at night - a better, stronger flow of water in the shower.

Since my last visit they have updated the decor in the room we were in, the continental breakfast was exactly what I needed and for a cooked breakfast we were directed to a very good place. Easy parking and caring service. Our shower was not behaving and the hotel sorted the situation in the best way it could very efficiently.

8/10 Very good

Hotel is a 15 to 20 minutes walk from city centre. Has a good size car park. Staff are friendly and helpful although at breakfast it would have been useful to have more than one on duty as they were having to deal with breakfast guests as well as those checking out.
