Stayed here with a group of friends for the weekend. Checked in Saturday afternoon until Sunday afternoon. Check-in was nice and easy. The room was surprisingly good. Had a nice sliding wooden panel instead of curtains and was pretty modern. Nice double bed and a selection of soft and harder pillows. Couldn't fault the room and was quiet at night.
The hotel had a small pool and gym. Used the pool which was nice. Chlorine was a little strong.
Bar area was in the hotel lobby. Staff were friendly enough, but all fairly young and customer service very low priority! Bar food and drinks were served very slowly. And there was a 10% service charge on food orders at the bar! Not good!
Now my pet hate. Expensive wifi! Very expensive wifi and not even free in the hotel lobby! Made worse by the fact that Vodafone is poor in the area so basically no comma the who weekend.
Evening meal in the hotel was fine. Food good and average service.
Breakfast again average, self-service affair. Not great service here. Only one or two people waiting tables. Had to ask for ketchup which took ages to arrive.
In a nutshell would be a much better hotel if (1) they had better staff (2) free wifi (3) didn't take the mickey with service charges.
