      4/5 Good

      • Liked: Cleanliness, property conditions & facilities, room comfort

      Great dining,

      Left to take our own luggage to room. No concierge. Parking arrangements not explained beforehand and residents didn’t use allocated bays. Dining was excellent and compensated for Front-of-house failings.

      Fabulous central location though also very quiet. The staff were exceedingly helpful. There was a problem with accessing the car park. The phone/gate system did not work well and involved standing in the rain unable to get out of the car park!

      • Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, property conditions & facilities

      The room was exceedingly warm with no means of lowering the temperature to below16 Celsius. The car park needed a phone so coming from Canada that was expensive. However we were given a fob to use later. The staff were really accommodating especially as there had been a mistake made with dates. I would recommend this hotel as long as a sea view room is booked. Town view rooms are very noisy.
