3 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

I stayed here for a conference and I would say that the hotel is average, maybe even below, for the price. The best part of the hotel is the breakfast. It is spectacular and has everything one would want.

Old furniture, old and noisey bathroom, no free wifi, the paid wifi is very slow, the pool doesn't look clean and fresh. Polite and friendly staff, good breakfast buffet. Average experince, for a business solo traveller.

Generally good standard of facilities, with fabulous heated pool. Great range of reasonably priced food. Yes the decor is dated and the place needs refurbishment but comfortable, clean and a high standard of service made up for that.
