Comfortable stay yet reception staff poor
Nice bathroom. Good bed. Quiet.
The room was comfortable and we where in the old part of the hotel. The air con was very noisy though. Reception staff were very cold and unfriendly. They need to be taught about customer service. Apart from that we liked our stay there.

Do not have a wedding here.
This venue for a wedding was a complete shambles. Mix up after mix up. Told we could be in to decorate on Friday morning then this changed to 10pm. Rooms not booked together as requested.Food was gross. Drinks over priced. Wedding cake was not cut up and put out- just left. Just made a stressful day even more stressful with their incompetence. I would not recommend this place at all.
