A lovely modern hotel but not in the city centre, situated on a busy road with only a McDonalds near by!
Room - nice & clean, good size with high tech touch screen controls. TV in our room did not work & on day 2 of our stay we advised the cleaner who rang through to the reception to advise them & we were told someone would come & fix it but no-one did!
Pool - good size pool but not enough sun beds. Pool was not heated & water is freezing! Although there is a poolside bar it's not manned until 12, the bar man was really nice but as he was on his own he would have to leave the bar to go inside to the lobby bar for cocktails or to collect food orders which meant there were long periods when the bar was not manned
Reception - most staff were friendly however on our 1st day we asked for an iron but was told that there was none available, even though I had emailed in advance to check to see if they supply them & was told that one would be available! After talking to several staff members who spoke very little english & about half an hour later we managed to find someone who could help us!
Lobby bar served nice cocktails but pricey! Didn't like the fact that they allowed smoking in doors so as a non smoker you left the bar smelling of smoke!
Spa - you had to pay to use the indoor pool & spa facilities! However the massages were fabulous & reasonably priced
Overall a nice hotel & pleasant stay
