Overall, a very pleasant hotel to stay in. The horizon club was generous with food and drink and the north restaurant provided an excellent breakfast. The staff were polite and very helpful, going out of their way to assist. Being right on the Marina was terrific with some excellent restaurants nearby.
My only criticism is that it feels a little tired and the decor in the rooms and the hotel generally are showing their age - which is not, however, a comment on cleanliness - which was excellent. That said, I did see a display in the foyer pertaining to forthcoming renovations and refurbishments so hopefully there may be a refresh in the not too distant future
