We are currently at the TRH, we've stayed here on many occasions. The hotel is being maintained and cleaned in an entirely satisfactorily manner. In the past I have found the check in staff lacked a strong service attitude, but at the moment the desk service is outstanding. While the restaurant is serving only breakfast and bar services are limited, it is far less crowded. I'm finding this stay just as relaxing as previous ones. We suggest there is no reason to avoid staying here.
