The food was first class, plenty of it and an amazing choice every night. I am a vegetarian and a fussy one at that and I could have... More

The room was tired and dated and toiletries consisted of a paper sachet of shampoo and shower gel. Not what I would expect from a four star... More

The staff is very friendly and tries really hard! The rooms have to be renovated because it's outdated. The carpet has stains in it for instance. The food is ok, but for a 4 star hotel I expect a bit more... The hotel has definately has potential.

We were very disappointed with the hotel, our room was not great and was in need of upgrading - the bath had several repairs in it. Not something you would expect from a 4... More
