  • Disliked: Cleanliness, amenities, property conditions & facilities

This hotel has gone down hill! Cobwebs on the ceiling, a number 2 left in my colleagues toilet on first day, mould around the base of the shower, thermostat on shower and electric heater not working, broken light in the bathroom, no running hot water for 2 days, no hoovered carpets in the hallways (ground and first floors) incredibly filthy. Restaurant had no fish on first evening, breakfast was cold. Only ate at the restaurant one evening and went out for the rest of the week. Everything out of order, lift at entrance for wheelchair users, coffee machines, gym under going refurbishment! Craters in the car park, everything is falling apart at this hotel, my colleague and I called it Faulty Towers and will be staying elsewhere in the future. Not worth the money.

Chose the hotel becuase it had a gym and it was closed when I stayed there. Very dissapointing that Hotels.com did not advise me at the time of booking. Dirty hallway carpet on way to lower floor accomodation below reception level. Otherwise reasonable nice place.

  • Disliked: Cleanliness

It’s in a nice location however the bed was worn and you can feel springs through the mattress where the two beds are hooked together there was mould in the shower along with hair in the plug hole the ashtray hadn’t been emptied on the balcony I enjoyed the stay but I was disappointed in the fact we had a executive balcony suite I expected better
