This was not the first time in this hotel for us and will definitely not be the last! Excellent from all possible angles. Location, services, in-room dining, cleaniness, friendliness of stuff and the list goes on.

Hello britty123, and thank you for your question. While we have not had a full renovation recently, we are constantly striving to maintain and upkeep our hotel to that of a "newly renovated" property. Our lobby bar is a cafe that serves drinks during the lunch and dinner hour however our hotel bar is on the 3rd floor, where our main restaurant is. I hope that helps to answer some of your questions, please let me know if I may assist further.
