Our room on the 22nd floor had a decent view of the surrounding buildings.
The room was reasonably priced and as expected. Clean enough, adequate amenities and comfortable.
The staff were very pleasant and greeted you with a smile and more than wiling to help.
The building is showing its age as is the room. However the furniture appeared to have been updated recently.
Our accommodation included buffet breakfast at the downstairs restaurant. The breakfast was pleasant and food was reasonable. No complaints at all but nothing to rave about.
Overall the stay was pleasant with no major complaints. Staff and service was fantastic but the building and rooms showing its age and could do with a refurbishment.
