Stayed here for two nights on August bank holiday weekend. Let me say first that without exception the staff were very good and the public areas of the hotel well presented. However , this is not a five star hotel as far as rooms are concerned. Room 205 was dark ( very little natural light) and even with all lights on it was very difficult to read. There was a lot of noise, no bathrobes, no fridge, no minibar and the smallest television I have seen since 1986. At best, this room was 3 star.
To be fair, the staff dealt with my feedback about the room very well. However, this hotel was a disappointment.
