“Hen Don't!”
Reviewed 8 March 2013

Myself and 12 friends stayed here on my hen weekend. It didn't start well as we had trouble gaining access to the key safe with the code I had been given. After ringing the owner I was given the correct number. It wouldn't have been to hard to have let me know the new number in advance. Luckily this was in office hours or we would have been stuck.

Apartment was very dark and nearly all of the ceiling light fittings didn't have bulbs. We had to move table lamps around to actually see in some of the bedrooms. Two bathrooms were useful but the only hot water was from the electric shower leaving an unusable jacuzzi bath. Only one of the bathrooms had a mirror and there was one other mirror in the unlit hall. Not ideal for 13 ladies trying to get ready for a night out.

All of us are non smokers but you can smoke in the apartment and it did smell. Another negative and if I had been told that when booking I would have looked elsewhere.

Sheets were spotless but the beds were tierd and one of my group slept on a slant as the casters had come off on one side. Also not enough glasses or mugs for everyone

On the plus side though it was in a good location.

Reviewed 1 December 2012

We went to this hotel to attend a conference. We were only staying one night. The staff were very abrupt and it was obvious they did not consider us valuable customers. We were given very small rooms close to the lifts. The rooms were clean bu that is the only redeeming feature. The bed was very uncomfortable and the decor drab. No bottled water, poor quality towels and toiletries
. There was no service in the foyer of the hotel. No one to serve tea or coffee except in the public bar. The breakfast was poor. No effort. Hot breakfast was cold. This is a hotel that just doesn't try. It is centrally located and therefore relies on this for its business. Absolutely no character. No personal service whatsoever. No, I will not be returning.
