Good As Usual
I must have been one of the last people to stay here before the COVID-19 travel restrictions were imposed. The hotel was half closed and I think there were only 10 hotel guests. However, I was given good service and the hotel had adapted accordingly to the Government advice. I look forward to staying here again when the travel ban has been lifted.

Lovely comfortable hotel. Clean, beds comfortable and great for the city centre. Friendly staff. Only downside was we were really looking forward to using the pool but still unavailable after nearly 5 months.

Not 4* standards
Hotels condition not great, thick dust behind heater (Would be easily accessible to clean) dirty stained carpets and chair covers, damp around windows and cracked/broken plaster to areas of the walls. Heating did not work in my room so was moved to another room which was In slightly Better condition.

Could have been better.
Check in was quick once i passed the queue in front. Room was clean and comfy. Once the weather turned later on there was an incessant whistling in the bathroom. Did report this to front desk but nothing was done. The noise continued throughout the night which made having a shower unbearable. Complained again to the night staff who were this time quite accommodating. This should have been sorted at first contact.
