We stayed 2 nights in this hotel. We had picked it as we required a place close to Merlin Park. We had requested a cot when we placed our reservation. However no confirmation nor any acknowledgement was received regarding this matter. We eventually rang the hotel and they were able to confirm that a cot will be available to us... More

The only positive thing I can say about this hotel is it is very well situated! I was there on business and looking for somewhere to set-up my laptop to catch up on some work. However the wifi connection was so poor that my devices kept dropping out. When I arrived there were 3 people ahead of me at reception... More

There are a lot of hen and stag parties frequenting here which was great fun I was with a group of four. Two couples. The room was very modern and there was a... More

The restaurant serves bar food which is good. The bar is very busy and the hotel seems to take stag party's and... More
