overall this hotel was distinctly average, some good points, some bad. a few changes this place could be a big magnet.
swift service on arrival, bedrooms of a modern stylish appearance, comfy bed, quiet from the outside world, secure free parking free wifi.
mildew in the bathroom (not very nice to have white tiles and brown patchy grout everywhere in a otherwise cleverly presented pre fabricated bathroom)
evening menu is very small when it comes to selection of food however not too pricey and tasted good with what was on offer.
breakfast was a joke. advertised as a continental breakfast more like a half attempt at an english breakfast gone wrong. no boiled eggs, no meat selection, rubbery cheese, iceland bargain sausages, bannana's on the turn and baked beans. To top it off i went for breakfast at 0630 when it first opened and everything was cold.
i can look past a bit of mildew thats just TLC required but i cant look past the dissapointment of breakfast, wouldn't serve it to my dog.
stay for a night as it was a comfy sleep but dont have the breakfast.
