Not a bad place to stay for a night or two, however as someone who visits hotels at least 30+ times per year for business and pleasure i wouldn't rate the property much above average.
The staff are friendly which is always great after a busy day and a must in today's customer focussed leisure sector. Internally the hotel looks a little dated and this continues into the rooms. Perhaps i was expecting too much for a 3 star establishment.
Unfortunately there must be some design fault with the hotel bedroom doors; i've never experienced such continuous loud banging in a hotel ever before. It's like someone is hitting the wall with a sledgehammer every time someone leaves their room and their door closes.
Seriously irritating if you're trying to sleep or work in you room. Time to get some new hinges maybe?!
