This hotel is good enough but has the potential to be so much better. It's located superbly, the rooms are comfortable and you get a warm welcome.
The reasons I'm not marking it higher are:
Breakfast - they need more staff. The ones there do their best but, if you arrive at a busy time, coffee is forgotten, things on the buffet run out etc.
Lounge Service - hit and miss. Sometimes it's ok but there's always the feeling the waitresses would enjoy their job more if there were no customers.
Internet -free but very, very slow especially in the rooms I've had.
These may seem like petty, minor gripes but the frustrating thing is they could be fixed so easily. If they did this, there's no reason future reviews couldn't be much better.
