Nice hotel great staff

Hotel is good for a short stay, it is away from the city but as i was travelling for work it was great for me as it was close to the site. Clean hotel but you can tell in some areas (e.g. restaurant ceiling) that is aging. Very friendly and helpful staff especially at reception and the food at the bar was good too.

So the staff were nice, got to our room and it was nice and big and comfortable.. Nice bathroom and room appeared to be very clean. However we thought it might have been nice if they had a menu for the bar or restaurant in the room. On looking through the guide that was left in the room I realised that there should have been a room service menu and a card in which you would put on the door to request room service for breakfast, however, these were not supplied. Not a big deal but would have been nice. Only stayed one night so other than that the hotel was lovely. The shower took a while to heat and was difficult to regulate.. This hotel was adequate and I would stay again as there was no major issues
