We booked this hotel because we were meeting some friends from California and it had been recommended by their travel agent. The hotel isnt cheap but it is overpriced for what you get.
Although the location is great and the staff are very friendly and helpful the quality of the accommodation is what disappoints. It is looking tired and in need of refurbishment. The wooden floors need re-staining and varnishing as it makes the common areas look dirty.
The room was small and the bathroom ( showeroom) was very small, okay for one night but no longer. The breakfast room in the basement was hot with inexpensive tables and chairs. The breakfast was acceptable but nothing more.
I wouldnt return here as there are better hotels that are less expensive.
