I stayed here for 1 night, 20/02/12.
I must say that after reading some of your reviews I was very apprehensive.
My room was number 6, yes it is small, compact even, but nontheless, clean and self contained, with more than adequate facilities.
What exactly do some people want for their money, you pay 4 * you can expect 4*, and I do stay quite a lot in the 3,4 and even 5 * establishments.
The staff were friendly and polite, the food was cooked exactly how I wanted it, I can only think that some people who complain here are professional moaners.
Enough said, rant over, and yes I would recommend this place and definitely stay here again.
