The hotel was difficult to find (not their fault), and had limited parking. My colleague had to park on a residential street about 5 minuteswalk away then move it later when space became available. Not ideal.
One guy behind the bar (Toni) was very helpful and attentive, however, the other waitresses were rude and appeared to be annoyed at having to serve you.
The food was very average.
The ceiling height on the rooms is far too low to ensure a comfortable stay - and I'm not tall!
I will not stay here again.
