If you're just staying for a couple of nights on business then this is OK, if you're on holiday my advice would be find somewhere else.
Good points: Although the rooms look a bit dated they were clean & comfortable - Top marks for the cleaning staff.
Our room had air con but we'd switch it off before sleeping since it was very noisy.
Breakfast is the usual continental affair but there's enough choice for all tastes.
Bad points: We booked as a family & were put on different floors - not a problem for us since our children are old enough, but people with younger children ought to be aware.
Our room had a balcony but we looked out onto the building opposite - OK on business, but on holiday probably not. Our childrens views were worse. Not much the hotel can do about this though & didn't really trouble us that much.
The fan in our bathroom didn't work & smelt a bit musty - when we reported it we were told it came on a timer & not with the light .... never heard it once!
The shower screen felt like it was about to collapse at any time & if you wanted to use the mirror after a shower you had to leave the door open.
The air con in my sons room was broken & that's the way it stayed.
The visitors welcome book is inaccurate .... the first point is quite minor. I says you have some sachets of tea coffee etc & milk - as tea drinkers we wanted milk & when we told the desk staff we didn't have any milk,they just said that this was incorrect. No problem, we just went & bought a carton, but if you don't get it remove it from the book!
Secondly - the book states that there is a free shuttle to the airport & can be booked 24hrs in advance. We thought we'd take advantage of this & asked at the desk in plenty of time & were told to come & let them know the morning of our departure to arrange a time. When we did this it was a different member of staff & we were told that they didn't run a free shuttle. I pointed out what it said in the welcome book & was told with a shrug of the shoulders the book was again wrong .... Well, remove it from the book then!
We then asked them if they could arrange for a taxi to take us to the airport & we'd pay .... DON'T! Arrange a co.ta.pe taxi yourself. The driver who turned up for us was downright dangerous & was more interested in touting for future business than looking where he was going!
We're quite easy going & this review would have been a better but for a little more effort.
Conclusion .... I shaln't be booking it again.
