I first visited this hotel in 2011 and had no complaints, so I thought I would book into this hotel again as it had a good location and I thought it was a good hotel on my first visit, however these were not my thoughts when leaving after our second visit.
The room itself was ok, although it was absolutely boiling (yes, even in December) and the heating system in the hotel is absolutely old school, plus it is so loud I had to sleep with ear plugs in.
WiFi was free in room when I visited in 2011, now it is chargeable in room and only free in the lobby. Another money making idea, which is frustrating.
I would say I wouldn’t visit this hotel again, unfortunately.
