Booked a room here at short notice. Rate was very reasonable. Arrived early evening, check in was quick, service was friendly. We had been upgraded to a kingsize bed. Room was spacious, furnishings were modern. Bathroom was small but had been well set up to make use of small space. Wall heater was noisy but very efficient. Not sure if there should have been a remote with it. Restaurant was good, arrived for dinner at last minute, which was not a problem. Meal was good. Breakfast was reasonable as well. Unfortunately the manager was on his mobile at a breakfast table discussing various things, which we found a bit annoying. Also, receptionists were eating as we checked out which really was not a good look. Hotel was handy to all places we needed to visit.
