Staff were on to it and greeted us as soon as we walked through the doors. Easy check in & out. Room was just what we needed and had no issues over the New Year period.

3/5 Okay

Travelled with family and small children
We stayed between Christmas and New Year, including NYE. We were told on a number of occasions that they were very busy and understaffed due to Covid and the Christmas period. The hotel is impersonal and business like. The only time anyone asked us if we were enjoying our stay was when we were asked by a cleaner we met near the lifts - she was lovely. The desk staff didn’t even look up when you went past. We weren’t asked if we wanted to book for dinner or breakfast on check in and weren’t able to get a table on the first night. Most diners weren’t hotel guests. The rooms were basic but adequate, more suited to an overnight stay. This hotel is well placed for a business stay or if catching the Ferry. Otherwise best avoid it.
