    Nice hotel, good location but no restaurant, bar or servicing of rooms at weekends. This seemed a bit odd for a hotel of this standard.

    • Liked: Cleanliness
    • Disliked: Staff & service, amenities

    We sat down to lunch at 12.30 and opened our computers as we were running late for a meeting, only to be told that the chef had gone to the doctors and probably (!) wouldn't be back. The reception staff were not friendly. My room keys didn't work and so I had to trudge back down to reception. No apology or acknowledgment. No Netflix. Photocopied menu of local restaurant as room service. I asked if there was a spare iphone charger or a way to charge my phone as I'd left my charger at home, but they were not helpful at all. On departing, my colleague and I both said good-bye but both receptionists didn't even look up. Disappointing.
