    The staff were pleasant and welcoming, the room was warm and cosy. It was nice to take advantage of the leisure club use while we were there. Showers didn't take long to heat up. True however the lift sounded like it had better day's.

    I stayed in this hotel in November 2015. After my bad review and so many others why are you still selling unfit rooms to unsuspecting people. The hotel has been undergoing a refurb well before I had the misfortune of staying, you seem to be wrecking any possibility of anyone returning to stay when it is finished, as you are still blatantly taking money for these horrible filthy rooms.
