Stayed 4 nights recently. The room was very strange. Only one useable socket at the far end of the bed which switches off when you leave the room hence inconvenient for charging a phone while going to breakfast for example. Shower was ridiculously small which was probably why the soap tray was above my head. Advertises air con and heating in every room but on enquiring why mine didn't work was told it was switched off because it was 'too cold'! Hence had to open windows and sleep on top of overly hard bed due to stifling heat. No safe in room. When I asked about the advertised airport shuttle service I was told where I could get a bus! Quite possibly the worst hotel breakfast I've ever attempted to eat with the only hot option being scrambled eggs. This review has gone on too long...much like my stay in this vastly overrated hotel.
