I stayed here for one night, check in was smooth and fast.
The room was a little tired looking, scuff marks on walls and on the door but might easily be the largest ever hotel room I have stayed in. When I was in the bathroom I washed my hands and there was no soap which was pretty amazing. So I had a look at the toiletries provided and it was pretty paltry for a 4 star hotel. There were 3 tiny bottles of shower gel, shampoo and body lotion and a shower cap. No soap at all. The other thing I needed was the sewing kit as I had pulled a ruffle from my cardigan during the day. So off to reception I went and after a lot of searching she turned up an open sewing kit but since it had a needle and thread I was happy. She also had a stock of soap, so I wonder why there was none in the room. The other jarring note in the bathroom was the quality of the toilet roll, definitely not 4* standard or luxurious.
Iron and ironing board worked perfectly, wifi was good, TV was good. The bed was actually 2 beds pushed together and made up into one large bed, so there was a ridge down the middle where the beds joined. Luckily I was there alone and I slept wonderfully.
Overall I really enjoyed my stay here but would question if it is a 4* hotel given the lack of attention to little details.
