Very Satisfactory
Comfortable room although the A/c heating unit was a bit noisy. Staff very attentive and the food was well cooked and presented at dinner and breakfast.

You have to ask for everything.
Hotel was nice and front service friendly. I booked 2 rooms. For both of them opening magnetic cards were not working so I had to go back to the reception. In one room 3 people stayed. One sleeping on sofa bed, but there were no additional bedding. In the second room for two people there was only one set of towels for one person. I had to go to the reception once again to ask for bedding and towels. So the hotel did absolutely nothing with our reservation before our move. I had to ask for everything what suppose to be ready upon our arrival.

Great hotel by car!
Great hotel, very inconveniently located for traveling by train. Deceiving location on the Internet. Nowhere near Harwich International.

Night staff need to be more vigilant
I stay here quite often but they let themselves down this time. Real problems with loud party noise between 1 and 3 am but staff nowhere to be found to sort it out. Next morning an apology and a few extra points but not a lot when you have had almost no sleep at all. There was no working lift either so had to carry bags to an upper level.
