Booked this hotel through an external website and got a cheap rate. We arrived at the reception and were 'greeted' by a not so friendly reception staff member who couldn't be bother to say hello or welcome. She just asked for my name and we felt like we were just another passing customer who she couldn't care less about.
We asked about making a reservation in the hotels steak house, she called and we were advised we had to be over there in 10mins to get a table. The entire time we had dinner, there were tables free so im not sure why there was such an urgency to rush us to check in and get ready. The Restaurant was over priced and our steaks were over cooked for what we asked for. when we said this to the waitress, her reply was simply 'OH' and she walked off and didn't return to our table.
The room was very grubby and outdated. It did not reflect on the lobby and the front of the building. TV in the room didn't work at all. Overall i will not recommend this hotel to anyone who enjoys comfort and good service and food.
