Hotel has old and new parts. I stayed in the new part. Room standard with firm bed, windows that open or heat/air although it shut itself off at times, flat screen tv with limited channels, coffee/tea, safe, odd cabinets, large enough closet with hangers and shelves, duvet or blanket Plastic edge of shower door falling off, some discoloration of grout, toilet in small space, sufficient counter space, separate tub and shower, laundry line, hair dryer.
Inconsistent service. All hotel personnel polite and tried to help when asked.
Some towels were frayed. Housekeeping uneven--sometimes received face cloth, sometimes not; once received shower cap; sometimes bath floor swept, sometimes not; twice entered room and serviced despite Do Not Disturb sign on door.
Front desk staff always on phone, but would eventually hang up to help in person guest. Sometimes bellman overwhelmed with daily bus tour group.
Lots of staff standing at attention at breakfast until on unspoken command they would collect their own breakfast and disappear into the kitchen leaving only 1 or 2 staff. Plenty of room except 7:30-8:30 weekdays.
I saw several irons/boards sitting outside doors for delivery/pick up.
Housekeeping and grounds maintenance (leaf blower) begin promptly and noisily at 8am each day.
Several machines not working in exercise room, but there was one treadmill, bicycle, crosstrainer, and step machine working as well as weights available. The controls for the ceiling fans are sort of hidden. TV turned on/off by standing on stool. Door does not close/lock.
Tour company staff friendly and helpful.
Small garden pleasant. Many benches covered with bird droppings. Can sit at outdoor restaurant.
Internet inconsistent and low bandwidth. Occasional short power interruption at night.
Same large selection at breakfast each day. I had a citrus salad in the dining room that was great and a beef burger in the pub that was inedible. Can dine/drink outdoors.
