The hotel is modern and clean. However a number of aspects provide a relatively poor experience, the reception and check in takes too long, if more than a few guest turn up the wait is for ever. The main restaurant was closed during my stay and the food available in the "bar" was of very poor quality. However, there are lots of local places to eat. Breakfasts are of reasonable standard but there is a single point for coffee and tea, which is not ideal when a number of people have to queue , by which time any hot food taken is cold.
Bedrooms are clean, large with an over firm bed, good shower (though in the bath) and plenty of toiletries. TV is old CRT style and few channels in English. The view from my room was of a construction site, not very appealing. There is a swimming pool and spa but I didn't get a chance to try it out.
