Reasonable price, obliging staff. Continental breakfast included.
Needs to be much cleaner. Stained walls, doors etc. Bathroom not cleaned while we were there and rubbish from previous guest under beds.
i did my own cooking and the facilities were excellent, even the other guests were friendly, very impressed. i felt very comfortable and safe using the communal areas, the night porter was absolutely outstanding, a credit to the establishment, polite and offering help every time i saw him, the fact he regularly did a walk through of the establishment checking everyone was safe was very assuring. Very impressed :-)
there were no windows and the air condtioning unit was been serviced, i could not sleep as it was far too hot and stuffy, even after i got a fan from the office, the fan was just circulating the hot air so i was having to leave my room door open alot of the time which seeming i was paying for a suite for the privacy i found unacceptable, being a asthmatic i found this suffocating and i barely slept. the second thing that was unacceptable was the two days i stayed, the air conditioning service ment drilling into the wall which first morning started 8am and second morning 7.52am. i was very angry after an already sleepless night to be woken both mornings of my stay, I had to have a nap in the shared lounge on the couch during the afternoon to get away from the noise, i was ment to be on holiday, and i returned home exhausted angry and stressed. didnt get to do much sight seeing as i was too tired and irritated. customers should have been notified there was alterations to the building happening , that would affect their stay with a discount offered which would have been acceptable, especially when i had booked 3 weeks ahead. but not even a apology was given when i complained so i was very dissapointing. its unfortunate had this had been done i would have been understanding and i would have given a excellence for the great honest customer service, even under these conditions, but for the mere ignorance of my feelings when i checked out, is why ive written this.
Easy to find. Parking. Large kitchens. Close to town centre.
Upper kitchen needs update.
MIX UP ABOUT BPAYMENT< A lot of mucking about
Breakfast was good although had trouble finding desert spoons on the first day. There were no tea towels. A pair of scissors would have been helpful. Shower worked well. Electronic key system worked well. We felt safe. There was very little noise outside or in the building.
One of the towels supplied was very grubby. It was very stained. One more blanket was needed because we always sleep with window open. The shower needs more hooks for hanging clothes on. There were no parks available so we parked outside for 2 nights. Car was not molested.
