                It had mugs rather than cups

                Various little charges for using creditcard and other services. No airport to hotel shuttle. No free wi-fi, nothing special.

                The staff were friendly. The Place was clean.

                The room I was in was right next to the gym and someone was on the treadmill until 9pm, so all I heard was thump thump thump until closing and then it started at 6am. Please move any machinery away from the common wall.

                Some areas of the hotel are looking a bit tired and it could do with a facelift

              • Older travelers
                7.0

                The room was clean with plenty of room. The food whether purchased from the restaurant, lounge/bar, cafe or room service was excellent. Staff were friendly. Breakfast great value. Dinner at restaurant was excellent. Plenty of parking.

                The spa in our room was older than me. The fixtures although clean are extremely dated. The lounge was very uncomfortable to sit on for any period of time. Our room experienced a lot of traffic noise. Listed as a 4 to 4.5 star hotel but the toiletries consisted of squeeze bottles on the wall. Not what you would expect from a higher rated hotel.

              • Couple
                6.2

                Quiet location, free parking.

                Breakfast was not worth its price (how do you spoil something as standard as a hotel breakfast? use cheapest ingredients, and save on dishwashing). Surcharge for credit card payments? doesn't make a huge financial difference to me (not sure about hotel management), but made my eyebrow raise. Central air conditioning is very noisy during daytime; it gets more quiet after 9pm, but a siesta nap is difficult.
