I stayed here with friends in July. Everything about it bar the breakfast was just alright. Breakfast, and the manager on duty were really lovely. The weather was lovely at the time but the only out door area was occupied by a wedding. The way one enters the hotel from the shopping centre was dingy and dirty, truly awful. At night my room mate and I discovered we were in a room which had been modified for disabled persons. Three was an alarm button next to the bathroom door which I accidentally pressed when I was looking for the light switch to go to the bathroom during the night. A long shrill alarm continually sounded. Reception rang up to our room to ask if we needed assistance but we said no, that we'd pressed it accidentally, so we went back to bed but that alarm sounded many more times. My friend phoned down to reception at one stage for assistance, as it was impossible to sleep with that alarm and no body answered in reception. There was an alarm in our room in case of emergencies, and when reception was contacted, no body could be reached. A fine lot of good it was having an alarm in that room. The following morning the man we spoke to at checkout told us that the reason they phoned to see if we needed assistance was so that they could come to our room and disable the alarm. We were not in the habit of setting off alarms in the middle of the night so we were not aware of that fact and the night staff did not explain it to us so we did not know. Furthermore my friend explained to him that she had phoned down later to ask for assistance but that nobody answered. No apology was offered for that. We had a nice stay, because of the company we were in, but the hotel itself was quite disappointing.
