I have recently stayed in the above hotel, and would like to pass on my experience.
the room, bed, duvet, pillows, shower and general cleanliness were all top notch, very impressed. also the cleaners were fast and efficient.
however, the breakfast buffet completely let the whole visit down.
the brochure says 'free' breakfast. obviously the costs are incorporated in the room prices, and I think the hotel would do much better just lowering the cost of the rooms, and charging for breakfast, if people want it.
the sausages were luke warm and poor quality, there wasn't any choice of eggs, or vegetables with hot breakfast. the crossants were stale, muffins inedible, bread for toasting too thin, and no trays, so you had to walk back and forth to collect your food and drinks. the coffee was amazing, and for me, made up for lack of food, but my family were not impressed. do yourself a favour, and just opt for outside brekky!
the card key is very sensitive too, so has to be re-programmed over and over again, allowing entry into your room!
