Disliked: Cleanliness, amenities, property conditions & facilities
I had to change rooms because there was such a potent deoderising smell in the room which made me sneeze upon entering. Positives were the staff who were friendly. The next room I moved to had a shower curtain with mould all over the bottom of it. No easy access to hotel restaurants.

Worth a stay. My colleague stayed the night for a production we were running local to the hotel and enjoyed it.

3/5 Okay

Travelled with group
Disliked: Cleanliness, staff & service
The apartment was spacious and had a great bath. The outlook from the window was out onto the carpark. It was difficult to sleep in the room (due to traffic noise) as the apartment faced directly onto the main road. The cleanliness was not up to my standard and for this price point. On arrival, I found hair on the floor in the bathroom on arrival and I found the sink was dirty upon wiping it out with a tissue. Overall the stay was not wonderful.

Very comfortable stay - some parts of the room looked a little dated, but look and feel was modern and well maintained. Would definitely consider staying here again.
