I had driven past this hotel many times in the past and was looking forward to staying. I have to say I was disappointed that it seems the hotel is getting tired with carpets and room decor having become quite dated and worn. It was clean, just worn. The basement parking is a great option, especially for special cars, but the area is untidy and needs cleaning. The staff member at the front desk was lovely and very helpful.

Unfortunately our reason for booking here was that it had a spa !As it turns out it wasn’t working or even maintained - very dIs appointed as the website clearly stated it had a spa - suggest they come clean and say No spa on the website . We had a room for three but really only 2 of a lot if things like glasses and No fan in bathroom definitely a fail ! Only thing going for the place is it’s proximity to town - rather tired / maybe mid stream in renovations as rumply carpet in kitchen a hazard.
