Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities
The hotel room was very clean and tidy however the only downfall was the time it took to check in and check out. It didn't matter when you checked in/out the lines were extremely long. The staff were lovely however there needed to be a faster service as we were waiting up to 40 minutes to check in and 30 minutes to check out.

Great location, comfortable beds and friendly staff. Serves it's purpose, just a shame both restaurants are closed. However, not far to walk to lots of lovely eateries. Will be back.
