All the staff are very friendly. The management is top notch. They listen to your concerns and address them as soon as they can. Its an old hotel but its very well maintained. I would recommend it to a friend over and over again

Having booked in for 15nights on 27th May we checked out after three days and moved to an alternative hotel with much better catering facilities and... More
