Travelled with group
Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, property conditions & facilities
Great location, not much atmosphere in the bar, they don't heat your rooms you have to go down to reception to get the heating on and you need to do it every day. There is no room service and no hair dryer. If they stated this when you checked in this could work but as there are no phones in the room you need to be dressed to go down to the reception to get sorted
