4/10 Average

Not a 4 * hotel

We were quite disapointed with this hotel as in years gone by my previous employer used to hold company functions here and the hotel was fab. The bathroom in the room is tiny and really need to be renovated. I was really surprised at the breakkfast set-up as the room where breakfat was held was just a standard function room with the server containers at the top of the room. Checking out was a chore as there was only one member of staff at the desk at 12 noon checkout and the amount of guests at reception at this time filled the reception hall.
