The confusion over the name of the hotel seems appropriate for the confused experience of our stay. The hotel official star rating is misleading to say the least. It is a mass of contradictions.
The staff are very friendly and try hard to please. Our bed was big and comfortable. The self-catering facilities built into the room were excellent ( fridge microwave, hobs, sink, storage ). This is not applicable to all the rooms. Many small things, such as non functioning lights and the miniscule bathroom were annoying.
The dining room is modern and adequate, the bar and reception are the opposite - small and dated. Not places for relaxation with a newspaper ! The kitchen location is unfortunate in that the full glory of the cooking is on display, as is the chef when smoking outside the hotel entrance !
In summary, it may be true that you get what you pay for, but this was a disappointing experience.
