I booked this hotel after reading the positive reviews posted here and for the first time ever Tripadvisor let me down. This hotel is one of the worst I have ever stayed in and I pride myself on doing my homework.
I'd been entrusted to book a three day stay for myself and my other half, her sister and brother-in-law and have never been so embarassed in my life after choosing this hotel.
The hotel bar was overpriced, the lobby doubled as the residents lounge and the restaurant was shocking. The breakfasts which I'd read rave reviews on consisted of some cold meat, hard boiled eggs, tomatoes and cheese in the cold section. For the hot part they served some potato croquettes, sausage and fried eggs that had been cooked in advance and left. Out of the 3 days we stayed on 2 of them the eggs were all yellow, what's that about? The bread for the toast was the same for the whole time and had not been replaced with fresh. The coffee served was tepid and of poor quality, go for the tea, it's not much better though.
The noise from the road is very intrusive especially in the early hours when the local motorcyclists use it as their own private dragstrip and you have to cross this road to get to the tramstop.
So, do yourself a favour and book somewhere else. You can't say you weren't warned!
