First the good. Well located, nice view if you pay for a room overlooking the marina. Very nice clean room. Had dinner in the restaurant which was excellent.
Did not initially get what I had booked, double bed, had a bit of trouble convincing the front desk that I was not going to settle for anything else, they tried to convince me that it was not their fault as I had booked on line even though my confirmation clearly said double. Eventually they had a very simple solution and made it in to a double, I could not understand why they would not do that in the first place.
The room was very noisy. Plumbing noises all night long kept me awake. Also shouting couple at night and shouting kids early morning although I guess every hotel can suffer from that. But the plumbing was ridiculous! Also we did not know that the building was being renovated starting early morning work, had I known I would have stayed somewhere else
Lastly the parking. Our room overlooked the parking lot on the street where I saw 4 dodgy looking characters hanging about asking for tips for helping people park. I did not see anyone refuse to pay. I would have been unhappy leaving my car there overnight. This seems to me to be something the hotel needs to take care of, I certainly don't like to see beggars hanging around the parking lot
I paid for 2 nights but only stayed for one because of the noise. No refund was offered but I didn't want to waste my holidays in a noisy room
