Convenient location, nicely decorated lobby, however once passed here the corridors are very dark and quite eerie. The key card had no indication which way up or round it goes in the door which led to several minutes of frustration only to find out it didn't work in the first place. The room was nicely decorated and a free safe is always a bonus. The walls of our room were thin and despite being at the far end of the corridor it was still very noisy during night and day. The most frustrating part of our stay was every time a door banged shut in the corridor it would jolt the shower into a dripping frenzy which led to an uncomfortable nights sleep. Whilst mentioning the shower it also ran cold several times (and there were two of them in one bath tub!?!)
The room was quite stuffy and this during the winter without the heating on.
Despite this the hotel staff are very friendly and most accommodating and provided us with a secure room in which to leave our luggage having several hours to kill after we had checked out.
