Arrived here and were quite impressed by the exterior, large, modern looking and in a terrific location. Check in was quick but we were a little confused by the "eclectic" interior (I'm being kind it's actually a total miss mash of styles - pictures of stags, African art, Japanese art, just as though no one could decide what to put...

Well the hotel is looking a little tired now. The room was poor with dripping tapes in the sink and the bath. Towel rail was broken extractor fan didn't work, the toilet system moved when you used it. Light fitting was broken and hanging off. Door was painted with what looked like undercoat and was never finished. Couldn't be asked...
