Mini Bar

We upgraded to a superior room which included a free mini bar, we were a bit dissapointed that it was empty on arrival and when it was replenished there were no alcoholic drinks provided.

Nice but noisy

I got no sleep here.

Firstly a loud wedding reception disco lasted that past 1am, ok I thought, I'll watch the TV. Turn it on, and it won;t get any channel info. No problem I thought, I'll use the wifi on my smartphone to check on-line, tried but it connects for about 5 seconds in every hour. Useless. But the big issue was a large multifan heat exchanger right outside the window and the window didn't seal properly, it was like trying to sleep next to a jumbo jet on takeoff.. Further to this the door seal and peep hole let in the bright halogen light from the hallway so the room was like daylight. Reception didn't care.

Hi hotel was great for what I wanted.

ONly drawback was I had to produce my credit card 3 x which seemed a bit too much as when I booked on line I thought I had paid, then had to produce when we checked in and then again when I checked out. bit of overkill I thought. Otherwise enjoyed the stay.

Upon arrival we were allocated a twin room After we booked a standard double.

However after returning to reception to point out there error , within 10 min we had been up graded to a different room. No further complaints after that. Staff very friendly & apologetic.
