Stayed here on 5th & 6th October 2012. It was nothing special as the room and facilities were fairly basic.
Nice comfortable bed, but privacy was somewhat lacking with frosted glass doors to the adjoining bathroom / toilet.
Only real disappointment was the attitude of the receptionist when we sat in the lounge for about an hour with a drink watching the TV. She was chatting away to a male who was obviously known to her. The lounge was quiet and there was no-one else was in the room.
We asked her if she could change channel on the TV for us, which seemed a bit of an effort for her and she seemed reluctant to do so. When she did accede, the sound was barely audible and her constant chat level with her friend overpowered the sound of the TV, so customer service seemed to come second at this place.
The bar was a bit spartan and not particularly comfortable, and the drinks were very expensive.
Food was nothing startling with only a limited choice, however the place was otherwise "OK"
A local Matchmaking festival was being held at this time, so it was quite noisy through to the early hours of the morning.
Wont be dashing back there again.
