    4/5 Good

    Good but needs more effort.

    Check-in was good. Room and bed were comfortable although I was expecting the club room to be larger. It’s getting to the point where it could use refreshing. Because it’s on the top floor you could hear the HVAC equipment running all night and it was fairly loud. The club lounge breakfast was lukewarm and so was the service. Overall it was pleasant but with a little more effort it could have been excellent.

    Good welcome, like the kids check in. Room had a great view which i had requested. Concierge very helpful and pleasant. Dinner service was not great. Liked the old man who was serving us but he didnt take our rder correctly then the wrong things came out. We asked for the air con to be turned off as we all ended up sitting in hoodies and coats as it was so drafty and cold. My pizza was burned and therefore had to be made again, but there was no offer of a drink or anything while the rest of my table were eating. My kids food was hot and looked good and mine was hot and tasty. (Had to send the garlic bread back as it was garlic bread with mushrooms on not the kids garlic bread) The room was good, could do with upgrading the decoration and there were only empty boxes of soap and toiletries in the bathroom, they hadnt been checked! Breakfast was good, lots of choice. Would return to the hotel. After i left we thought that we had left something in our room. This was checked for and i was called back. I am very grateful for this.

    5/5 Excellent

      Great location, excellent service, even with the wake up call, I was in the shower and someone came to my room to knock on the door! Re car to the airport I was quoted Pounds 60 which was maybe 5 pounds more than usual By the time I got to my room I was quoted 70 pounds! I took a black cab instead and got to my destination for 59 pounds I am a regular at the hotel which gives excellent value for the pound or shall I say Canadian Dollar !
