2/5

One member of staff on checkin at 7.30 and a queue for 25 minutes. Duty manager deliberately not coming to help despite being asked. No explanation to the queue. Someone needs training.

Stayed 1 night in Nov 2019

3/5

I thought this is perfect location for a drink by the river after a trudge round tourist attraction, but don't expect to eat anything exciting and don't bother with breakfast.

Stayed 2 nights in Oct 2019

4/5 Good

Well positioned, spacious hotel with all the amenities you might need. We didn’t use the pool / gym but the facilities looked good. The room was comfortable, slept well in the bed and it was quiet. Didn’t hear doors slamming, along the corridor, that you quite often do in hotels. Would happily return.
