We found the hotel and rooms to be very tired and in need of an upgrade. I do not feel the price I paid was value for money. The rooms, corridors and general reception areas were old fashioned, dirty in places and smelled unpleasant. There was a distinct lack of staff, check out consisted of put your key in a drop box, there was no one around to complain to!!. I would never recommend this hotel to family or friends and I would never stay there again! One night was one night too many!!.
