Cost-effective conference centre
The accommodation is a conference centre for a national organisation.
The staff were particularly friendly and helpful, for example pointing out that I could probably obtain a continental breakfast before the time formal breakfast was served. The room was clean, fairly well equipped if small. My main quibble was the constant drone which persisted all night - I am unsure whether this was water or aircon. A restaurant serves a formal meal, which is quite pricey, but there is also a range of typical bar meals.
A surprisingly lovely place to say
I wasn't sure what to expect when I arrived, as I understood it was not so much a hotel but a residential training centre.
So while It lacked what one would expect from a hotel I was really pleased with my stay and found it a clean, modern if somewhat basic (I don't mean that negatively ) room. Certainly for a business accommodation I would highly recommend staying there, though my only request would be please improve the wifi speed.
