5/5 Excellent

Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, property conditions & facilities
Just loved staying at this property. It fit my needs perfectly as I was on business and pleasure. The room was comfortable, beautiful view, perfect work station. I was having connection issues one night and Gavin set me up with a room to use to complete my work and meetings. Some amenities were unavailable due to refurbishment, and I was unable to dine at the restaurant due to a large event. Breakfast was a bit disappointing given the cost but the entire staff was pleasant. I only wish someone had at least offered to help me with my bags; I had walked half a mile from the train station after a long day of travel and found myself at the very back of the hotel going up a number of smaller staircases even on my floor. It is a minor detail, but I’m sure one guests paying a premium would prefer.

Nice hotel but could do with installing aircon
Set down outside hotel is bad it’s on a very busy rd and not enough spaces. Check in staff were very welcoming and helpful and parking was close by. The room was clean and pleasant but the heat in the room was horrendous even though there was a fan provided, could have done with windows that opened wider
