Very Good8.0
Great food & revamped hotel rooms
Great location for business, breakfast & dinner were spot on. Lots of options. Room was very nice, just had recently been painted so had a smell of Paint which was quite annoying other than that fine. Would stay again.

Not bad, not good ..
Unwelcoming greeting on check in .. nice clean room , nice bed .. probably the worst shower in any place I’ve stayed in, more of a dribble than a shower . Nice hot breakfast, shame about the coffee , weak .
