Came as a six-day holiday by coach and was impressed that the tripadvisor ratings are displayed for all to see.
The room was quiet and accessible by lift, as requested.
HOWEVER, the television was old with a small CRT screen and had very limited channels. NEVERTHELESS, IT WAS IN COLOUR ! Nowadays I expect the full range of digital channels, especially BBC News (Channel 80) on a flat screen display.
The dining room and food were excellent, with good choices for all meals.
The staff were very efficient and quick, and seemed to have unbeatable memories for the combinations ordered. All the staff were very friendly and helpful.... Especially GEORGE, who was always around and added an extra level of good customer satisfaction.
The entertainment was not to my taste and seemed to be very hit and miss regarding timings. A wider range of performing style would be welcomed by me.
The hotel is well-served by local transport, with tram and bus stops being situated directly opposite.
This is a great place to stay.
