Having been here last in July , during this time the hotel was being upgraded . We are here now to see the upgrade of the hallways and rooms . The hallways look smart with a wooden block on the ground floor , the rooms have been re-carpeted and ceramic floor tiles both in the entrance to the room and the bathroom . A nice comfortable new bed completes the room improvements . The first floor is soon to be upgraded as well
The lobby staff must rate as one of the friendliest front desk staff you could imagine , all fronted by an excellent management team . The housekeeping staff are a happy team as well always greeting guests with a good morning when you pass them in the hallway , making them feel special . this hotel offers what a lot of hotels in this area do not and that's the personal touch , which means so much to the repeat families that visit here yearly , they are greeted as friends and not just someone who pays to stay here .
