Most aspects of the hotel are very good - but it is the friendliness and helpfulness of the staff that give it a real boost. All the staff members were friendly without being obtrusive, and made me feel very welcome throughout my stay.
My room was clean and well maintained, although the furniture was a bit too big - difficult to get to the window to open and close curtains because a chair blocked all the space between bed and desk. Bed was just too firm to be comfortable - but better than being just too soft. The cupboard was adequate for hanging clothes - except that a huge ironing board took up a good chunk of the space.
Breakfast was superb (fresh, with a good selection), although perhaps there could have been one or two more staff circulating with coffee.
Very pleasant swimming pool, although busy at lunchtime with the many conferences and meetings taking place here having lunch beside it.
