I spent 3 days on a business trip, the hotel was recommended for its convenient location for the office. The staff were friendly and efficient, the food was good (especially the fish) and so was its presentation. I was asked every time whether I wanted a side order of chips with my meal (I didn't, the portions were fine without any additional chips) - which made me think that chips are either part of the staple diet or the chef's speciality. Breakfast was the standard fare, nothing spectacular.
Getting a taxi in the morning was easy, there is a company onsite.
My room was clean and tidy - overall the hotel looks dated and in need of an overhaul. There is not much ambience in the lounge or in the bar area. Having said that - the place is popular (most of the people looked past retirement age); the lounge was full with people enjoying afternoon teas, pre-dinner drinks and food (which is served in the lounge as an alternative to the restaurant and the sports bar / restaurant.
On two of the three days the lift was not working in the morning.
Would I go back - yes, I would because it's a convenient place to get to the office, I would not choose the hotel for a leisure break
