This hotel was really a mix of very limited good moments with many not so good. After arranging an upgrade to superior rooms and paying extra on arrival we experienced many problems with the rooms.

Don't read this if you have booked to go here! This hotel has clearly had better days. This is an honest reveiew based on family of 4 travelling with kids aged 10 and 14. The rooms were once self catering as set up with kitchen etc. There are building works outside the hotel and inside the hotel. Our view from... More
