Can't recommend it enough, although it is a little old and from the outside looks like a boring block it is lovely, clean, spacious in all public rooms and our bedroom was great, two big beds, separate bath, shower and toilet, sofa and desk area. All staff we...

They did a 2 for 1 offer before ramadan. Usually it's a nice brunch but here it was a hell factory! Felt like a sheep lost in the herd. All table stuck at each other just to make sure the event would be cost efficient to the detriment of the quality of the stay. No additional staff scheduled so we...

Had a fabulous time in May staying here. Was a little apprehensive as I have stayed at the Traders Hotel before which is divine. The hotel bathroom was a 'little tired' not up to the Traders standard but the room was well decorated, beds comfy with an assortment of pillows to choose from. However, next time I will be coming...

From the moment we were dropped off to the moment we left we were looked after. The front desk was the friendliest, most efficient & informative I have ever experienced. The buffet was the tastiest food with a huge choice each day that we never tired of with really 5 * staff, including those at the Prosecco bar where we...
