I stayed here on a business trip.
Checking in was efficient and the staff on reception were friendly and helpful.
I was checked into a twin room which overlooked the car park at the side of the hotel and was also the deliveries entrance. If staying, avoid rooms 140-145, I was woken quite early by the bottles from the bar being emptied!!
The room I stayed in was a good size, the A/C was good, the bathroom was tasteful with a powerful shower. The selection of amenities in the bathroom was very good! The bed was very comfortable. I especially liked the sleeping aid provided, essential oils and pillow spray, nice touch.
Breakfast was average and it was here were the slight improvement could be made, attention to what the customer has requested, on all three days that I requested tea, I was given coffee - but this was just a minor irritation. It would also be helpful if customers are asked if they are making use of use the hotel parking and given a code without having to walk back to reception to get it!
Other than these above small issues, the hotel is well located and of a good standard. I would stay here again.
