I booked this hotel having previously stayed at the nearby pricier Holiday Inn. There was no real difference between the two (except the location and here the breakfast was included). The room was clean and comfortable and the staff helpful and friendly.
I had an accessible room and once accidentally pulled one of the alarm cords. I received an immediate call to see if all was well.
The breakfast was excellent with plenty of choice.
My stay was for four nights with earliest check in 2 pm, latest check out 11 am. Pretty standard. I assume that like me most people plan their travel arrangements round these times.
It was a little disconcerting therefore when there was a knock on the door at 10.15 a..m. yesterday, my day of departure, and I opened the door to find not the cleaner but a member of the office staff saying the cleaner wanted to come in to change the room. She went away when I pointed out I had till 11 a.m. to vacate, agreeing that yes, that was another 45 minutes. I packed and left as quickly as possible feeling that I had been pushed out. This gave a very poor impression and spoiled what had till then been a very pleasant stay.
