I will defiantly be looking for the other Penta hotels on my travels!... More

I'm travelling for business quite a lot and therefore I need to proper WiFi. I don't want to pay extra for itas it should be included in the standard package. Just increase the price per night by a couple pounds.

Got back to our room after breakfast and before checkout. The maid was in our room and had thrown out my toothbrush and toothpaste. Didn't speak English or understand my annoyance. Very disappointed!!

Stayed there for a business trip (one night). Comfortable and clean room, friendly staff and great kitchen (recommend the steaks). Excellent location (city centre, close to shopping mall) and very accessible.
