It's hard to believe that the hotel I stayed in last night is the same as the one mentioned in all these reviews!! I agree that the hotel is very well situated, the bar and communal areas very nice, the bathroom clean and the staff friendly and helpful! If I was to review it on those things alone, I would give it a 4/5! However, the hotel lets itself down in one very important aspect - the beds!! The bed looked comfortable enough until I sat on the edge and immediately sunk down several inches. Lying on it was even worse - just like lying on a very squidgy marshmallow. I don't like hard beds but this bed went too far in the opposite direction.The nice man at Reception when I rang down, politely told me all the beds in the hotel were the same and did offer to put a board underneath it, but we decided to move the mattress on to the floor. It then became obvious what the real problem was - the bed base - which was very old and lumpy, and
alongside the oversoft mattress gave no support. So, in short, if you don't mind a very soft bed, you'll be fine. But if you have ever experienced back problems, avoid this hotel at all cost. This hotel could be fantastic if they spent some money on replacing the beds. Sorry, Abode, I'd have loved to have given you a better review but please take these comments on board. Your beds were the worst I have ever encountered in a hotel!
