I decided to stay at the Kingsgate Hotel the night before a Business Meeting. Overall I would give this Hotel an Average Rating. Reception staff friendly and helpful at Check-in and Check-out. The room I stayed in was quite small but was very clean and has Air-Conditioning and SKY TV. Great for an overnight stay. I dined at the Restaurant on the night of my stay and found the food and service to be very average. I tried a couple of times to engage in conversation with the waiter and waitress but they didn't seem that interested in a friendly conversation.I would be happy to stay here again if I'm in the area for Business purposes as I found the rates for the accommodation good value and the hotel is in a great location near the city center. Overall this is a great hotel if travelling on business but I wouldn't stay here on a personal holiday or trip away.
