I stayed for 4 nights on business and I couldn't fault the room. It was clean, comfortable and quiet. Whilst the staff were pleasant and polite, the level of service was not great. We sat for ages waiting to be served at the bar and in the restaurant. Most of the staff seemed to be very new, only having worked there for a day or two. Some refurbishment had also been carried out.
The quality of the food is not to the level for what they charge for it. It is very expensive for what you get.
Overall its not bad, I have certainly stayed in worse establishments. I got the feeling that the place had recently been taken over and maybe previously had gone bust or it was being run by receivers as a going concern.
