    The room was clean, but walls and furnishing old fashioned and tattered. I arrived late and woke up without flushing toilet, no water in sink and no shower! The manager was inexperienced and offered little help and little apology. Worst hotel I have stayed at in many years.

    The noise of the kitchen fans which Sounded into the room during the day until night. Then started up at 3 AM And woke me up, then re started up early in the morning. I complained to reception, I was given another room (Room 100) Only to find the continuous noise of a generator From outside the room buzzing into the room, This continued all night. I have had the lousiest two nights sleep ever in a hotel. Shocking, I will never stay at this hotel again

    Lack of parking or notice of parking restraints. Small rooms. Need of refurbishment. Master card charge additional and should be incorporated in overall charge. Breakfast eating area cold, with dated air conditioners blwoing a lot of cold air directly at guests.

    The location was perfect. The hotel was very comfortable and the lovely old lift (elevator) was very sweet. Pleasant and well spoken staff, very helpful and responsive to all our needs.

    Fabulous

    The accommodation was pretty good, but was perhaps a little tired. The bathroom requires some work on the tiling and the razor point would be better connected permanently to the mains rather than only when the bathroom light is on. This would enable razors and toothbrushes to be recharged more readily. The staff were very helpful and polite.
