A very impressive modern hotel which was completely let down by the quality (or lack thereof) of the staff, especially the bar staff. Unhelpful, uninterested and incompetent. I definitely will not be back. Its such a pity because it has great potential. Seems like a case of "if you pay peanuts you get monkeys"

This hotel really leaves a lot to be desired. The staff are so passive aggressive in their handling of customers and the food was the worst muck I've ever tasted. Overheard a full conversation of the receptionist and what looked to be a manager laughing about a customers who just phoned down to reception. So unprofessional. The food was all... More
