My wife and I have just had a one night stay at this hotel.
The time on arrival was 12.55pm on a saturday afternoon and when we went into reception we were told in no uncertain terms that we were too early to check in and as the hotel was completely deserted I found this rather strange.
We enquired as to whether we could have lunch and was told that they didn't do food on weekend afternoons but to walk into the city instead where we would find somewhere to eat.
After lunch we returned and checked in the room was number 16 a newly refurbed executive room which was very clean, a lovely shower ( no bath in this room ) and a very large bed , one niggle was only 2 sachets of milk on the drinks tray which was nowhere near enough.The room was very good but I personally found that you wouldnt want a long stay in it as was not very big.
We were given instructions on how to re enter the hotel after 12.30 am and these were very clear and accurate.
We got a goodnights sleep and went down to breakfast which is between 8-9.30am which for a sunday seemed a bit early. Breakfast was a straight choice of english or continental with no cereals as a starter for yourfried breakfast , it was ok no better no worse.
We had decided on a 9.00 breakfast and just as we were finishing at 9.45 the radio was turned off and that was it , the most abrupt and rude end to any meal I have had.
Overall this hotel was ok but in my own opinion I thought the owner wanted you in and out of there as soon as possible and the place seemed to lack a bit of warmth and friendliness, having said that the price was competitive, this is a hotel where I will keep a close eye on reviews before deciding wether to return.
