Although the staff were friendly, this hotel needs some improvements; both in terms of rooms and service. When we arrived, we were left alone for twenty minutes whilst we waited to be seen to. The rooms back on to the road, and unfortunately soundproofing was non-existent. The soundproofing between neighbouring bathrooms is even worse as the partition wall doesn't fully reach the ceiling so prepared to hear your neighbours' movements! The food was pretty poor. There was no choice of at all, you were literally offered one dish (not good for vegetarians) and it was ridiculously overpriced for average quality.
