Surprised by all the postive notes here. I was not impressed. The d Hotel is certainly not up to 4 star standard. Aircon does not exist here, nor does it have a sauna. The postive effect of that was because of the high temperatures outside the rooms doubled as saunas! Leaving the jokes aside, a hotel like this should have airconditioned rooms. Also out of seven days the internet was working only on one evening! This is incredibly poor for a hotel attracting, or hoping to attract, business clientele.
Some of the rooms, like mine, are very poorly located near the adjoining pub with (outside) live music and outdoor seating. This guarantees many sleepless hours, especially at Fridays and weekends. Staff was only willing to relocate me for one night, stating 'fully booked' as the reason. If you come here to sleep get a room overlooking the carpark or river.
Breakfast ok. Small gym was ok. Food in pub decent for pub food.
That is about it. I feel that I have been rather generous with my 2 star rating.
My advice? Go elsewhere.
