Major construction work being carried out, causing disruption to access in the hotel and serious noise issues. Very little available due to ongoing construction. I received no advance notification of this work. Breakfast was a shambles with very poor service and very little on offer by 9am. Over very disappointing.

Unten die Bar perfekt, Restaurant und Empfangsbereich ebenfalls, Zimmer so so la la! Türschliesser funktionierte an keiner Türe, deshalb Lärm bis spät in die Nacht und am morgen früh schon wieder
