Positive Reviews


Really outstanding food.

Breakfast and later dining are both of really impressive quality and choice. An unexpected but very welcome feather in the hotel’s cap.


Always pleasant staff.

Very accommodating and helpful; they perform their duties efficiently as instanced by the cleanliness throughout and the seemingly smooth running of every aspect of the operation.


Wi-Fi improvements.

Regular guests will notice a marked improvement. Easy to operate via password, Wi-Fi is now much more efficient and a real boon, particularly for those visiting business guests.

Negative Reviews


Heating has a mind of its own.

Some concern in this direction as, on a hot summer day, the heating system is churning heat out with no apparent way of controlling it.


No sound insulation.

If there is any, it’s not very effective. It’s almost like sharing a room with the folk next door.


Not a great bar idea.

The bar closes at 11pm which is an obvious drawback for business people returning after evening commitments. Bottled beers etc; are available from the night porter but it’s not quite the same.
