    I enjoyed my stay in the hotel. From a customer service point of view it lacked polish. On arriving at the hotel the receptionist was extremely dismissive & because of this came across as very rude & this was experienced on check out with the same person. While she may have been busy eye contact & a smile would have gone a long way as opposed to a firm shake of the head, no smile & then ignoring us. Sadly this first & last impression soured our stay.

      First time stopping here, was very much just a standard hotel. Bed wasn’t comfortable noisy room due to the lift being outside the room, this after asking to be moved due to noisy neighbours! Relatively new hotel but was dated already and could do with a spruce up.
