Rooms are spacious and clean although decor is a little dated. Beds and pillows are some of the best we have had in hotels around the world up to 5*. Staff on reception are helpful... More

This was a wonderful place to stay. Nice staff and clean rooms. Food for me was breakfast only but fine. The only downside was the music that was played all day, it was for the very young with lots of rap. Music for the over 50s now and then would be nice.
