Reviewed 7 August 2014 via mobile

This hotel has no ideas of grandeur, it's a good, correctly rated 3 star and my 3 nights stay was pleasant. Cons : Dated Lobby, but you can live wuth that/ Bathroom while adequate, most definitely needs upgrading / Towels are threadbare Pros : The beds are fab and of 5 star quality/ Room size really spacious and well decorated/...

Hope we...
