staff were pleasant, room was clean but no room service
7.3 Good
hotel was very clean and well presented bed was amazingly comfy. pity there wasnt a small bar fridge in the room. also in the mornings there was a very strong smell of cigarette smoke in the room. we are non smokers so was a bit alarming. the breakfast was the bigger dissappointment wasted money on that such a shame.
9.5 Wonderful
