The hotel was quite easy to find, but offers no free secure parking. Check-in was quick enough, but once you are in the secure parking area it's a very long walk back to reception or your room.
The public facilities looked okay but we didn't try it as it was quite late.
The room was pretty standard, spacious enough and well equipped. Strange to see an old fashioned key in this day and age.
Negatives were a funny rounded shape bath bottom which made showering quite hazardous, an aircon that emitted bad smells and damp issues on the walls.
My main issue with this hotel is that it's overpriced by about 40% for what it is. For the kind of money they charge one expects better.
However, all the staff were very friendly and helpfull, and the service was very good, and for that reason alone I will consider staying here again.
