6.2 Okay
Pros:Excellent location, limited free parking
Cons:Rooms are small and outdated, bed was very uncomfortable, one stairway is very uneven under the thick carpet, breakfast options are very limited compared to other similar hotels.
9.1 Wonderful
Pros:Great breakfast buffet with fried eggs, toast, mushrooms, beans and more, very vegetarian friendly. Tower room was great with water views, big and comfortable.
Cons:Parking free has only 8 spots available though public parking is available also right there with just a pound per hour needing to be paid only between 9 and 6.
5.7 Fair
Pros:Their cute restaurant downstairs
Cons:-- Weird way to get to the rooms, you go to the back, past the bathrooms, and then up these stairs that looks more like a servants entry. Definitely doesn't feel like a luxurious stay considering the inital impression of how you even first get to your rooms --The water heater was out on our floor so even though it was so cold out and all you wanted was a hot bath, the showers were chilly and even the heater for the room didn't work well so it was cold in the room -- The staff was also not all that friendly. As a traveler, you just want to connect with people, but they seemed dismissive and unfriendly. -- It's too bad as the location is so great but they really need to feel more like an upper scale hotel for where they're located, do remodeling to make the entryway or how you get to your rooms nicer, do not put people on floors with broken heaters, or next to other rooms that you will be able to hear others through the walls (which also happened). Space out the rooms if there is availability so you're not sharing a wall with someone.
