Staff were fantastic! First time I have stayed and certainly better than other hotels in the area I have stayed in! Only thing I would do would be to offer staying guests some sort of discount in the restaurant!

If cleaning and internet connection is improved it will be value for money. The´location is good and there was a good service. However, I expect a clean hotel. Internet connection was not reliable. Fast and reliable internet connection is crusial for business trips
