It is the little things that spoilt this hotel for me and friends that were also staying at the time. In the main it was fine, my room clean and comfortable, reasonably priced and good quality food, amenities very good, bar prices were also reasonable.
The staff were polite, friendly and helpful, most of them seemed very young and I do not mean that in a derogatory way, but they did not exhibit professionalism. The reception and bar on a number of occasions were left unattended, I informed reception that the glass shelf above the sink in my bathroom was at such an angle that it was impossible to put anything on it, I had to tell them again when I left. Both myself and a friend asked for a call at 0800 one morning and did not get one, another friend asked for a non slip shower mat to be placed in his room in the morning and had to ask again in the evening. These combined with - bad lighting in rooms, poor quality toiletries, tea/coffee supplies not replenished in the morning and other smaller things spoil what could be an excellent hotel situated in an excellent location.
