Great hotel at affordable price!
The breakfast was amazing, loved the beds and reception staff. The only issue was heater and hot water during our stay - the service was super slow. Otherwise, I really appreciate the cleanliness and well kept rooms. Thumbs up for great rooms at affordable prices!

Good location and family friendly
It was a good clean nice tidy room, staff on reception very helping and responsive but the restaurant staff were not so responsive. Breakfast menu was great but service let it down. A good hotel to stay because of location and family friendly

4/10 Fair

Stay only as last resort.
We had gone for a family holiday, booked 4 rooms. The Rooms were just not upto mark..Door chain not functioning, Mini fridge either absent or not working in some rooms. Hotel seemed short staffed. Toaster was malfunctioning, got repaired next day. Coffee Machine was not working. The sad part was the non responsive attitude of the front desk who made no attempt to rectify shortcomings. Basics like hand towels/Napkins had to be requested for each day. All in all not a value for money proposition. Its at best akin to a TWO star property at fancy prices.
