We unexpectedly paid this hotel a visit after our plane from Jamaica to UK was diverted to Gander after it developed a fault. The staff were all very nice and helpful. The food was good and although it was a set meal for all guests from our flight, they managed to sort our a vegetarian alternative for me. The bed... More

We stayed several nights at this hotel. It was OK --- a tired hotel. The restaurant food was just OK -- eat out if possible as there are several very good restaurants in the area. Some visible repair to the toilet in the room- the tank cover had been broken, glued and then put back on the tank. As a... More

Nicer inside than the exterior of the building suggests. Check in was seamless and while the room was basic, it was reassuringly clean and the bedding was above average. There was, however, a sign on the front desk that the pool was out of commission "until further notice" which to me suggests a lengthy repair is pending. Whereas this did... More
