3/5 Okay

Business traveller, Travelled with partner
Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service
Nice enough hotel. Facilities lacked a bit. The room itself was fine. A bit dated but clean. We couldn’t find our tv remote, when we did manage to turn it on the screen was broken on one side. The shower head didn’t stay up, it kept sliding down the pole. Apart from that, the bed was comfy, staff were lovely. And there’s a cracking Lebanese restaurant attached to it which you have to go to.

2/5 Poor

Travelled with partner
Liked: Cleanliness
Disliked: Property conditions & facilities
Property was a bit outdated and seemed more like a guesthouse than a four star hotel. Staff shortages meant that we had to do a self service check-in. The garden outside was an asset and really nice. Superior room was clean and the bed comfortable, but much smaller than advertised. Overall, a bit of a disappointment

Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service
Disliked: Property conditions & facilities
Property is quite run-down. Shower mixer-tap is not working as it should and leaking. The television is showing white snow on every channel. Only continental breakfast offered.
