For the price paid, I was disappointed with this hotel. The staff were extremely friendly. However, the rooms are dated and in need of upgrading. The breakfast was also disappointing considering the rate we paid.

Dear Subs89, thanks for posting your review, I will certainly pass on your comments to the team as they take heart from these. I understand your feedback regarding the rooms, they are certainly the most spacious in the area and the rate is driven by the demand too. With regards, Christine. More

Room, no28, was absolutely fine. However very concerned that the staff were very inexperienced in dealing with large numbers. We had booked a table in the dining room for a group of us and we're told we could only have the set menu for the dancers however we noticed others did not have to order from it! The three course...

On arrival asked if I could have a ground floor room, none available as they were for families only and fully booked, even though I was travelling with a disabled person.

The hotel is in a great location but this is the only thing going for it. I was upgraded to a suite, but if that's the best - it's frightening. Tired and old would be an understatement! Half of the lights in my room didn't work. The sofa was old and stained. The hotel was freezing. When I put my... More

I promptly cancelled my reservation upon arrival. Was greeted by the staff as if I had entered the Munsters. Cold, unsmiling, rude and gave me the impression that they hated their job. Will not recommend nor stay here. I am an IHG rewards member and will look elsewhere.

Given the high price paid for this hotel, it does not represent good value. There are some nice features such as a personalised welcoming letter from the general manager and a free chocolate bar and very small bottle of water. As for the rest of the hotel it lacks Character, looks outdated and is really cold in the common areas.... More

Surprisingly quiet given the location and good hotel. The food was good in the restaurant. But...the internet service is hopeless. It cannot be beyond the wit of man to ensure it works. It was well known by the staff that it was hopeless and as such a high priority needs to be put on having a good, reliable capability.
