Gordon Ramsey could not give this hotel any tips in quickening the speed and attentiveness of service. This was no Kitchen Nightmare! Our meal was in fact relaxed and I could not fault any of the four servers who attended to us! We were not rushed but as soon as you asked for anything, as if by magic, it appeared...

Very basic. Paint had obviously been applied to the doors and windows in our room which made them difficult to shut. The bathroom door didn't close properly at all. The hotel was old fashioned. The only vegetarian option of food in the bar was a tasteless pasta affair. At breakfast, which was very basic, they forgot to bring my tea...
