We were lucky enough to have been allocated a room with a small balcony.
But sitting on the balcony amongst all the cigarette ends and weeds was not so good. Such a shame , because the room was spotless. But they had clearly forgotten to clean outside!
Stayed for my 60th bday
It was a lovely hotel very clean and very classy big hotel.
staff very helpful and lovely. manager was lovely too. spent the nite there, nite club was good open till 3/4 in the morning. spa was nice but just a bit small, steam room and sauna could do with a bigger one. hotel is beautiful very plush !!. £7.50 a glass of wine !!.
