    It was awesome!

    Great stay for a couple of nights with husband and toddler. Clean, comfortable and enjoyed the stay. Highly recommend to anyone looking to still enjoy a city break during these times!

    Tall guy reception staff was rude, we booked for breakfast and he insisted no breakfast included in our booking, thanks to Deleva not sure her name she fixed my issues, 1st room we had was out dated, aircon was not cold, and smelt. Over all was good but not 5 star.

    There was no atmosphere. Lovely area to sit and have a drink with a piano but no music or atmosphere so not inviting.
