  • 6,0.Good

    Ok we stay in Macdonald hotels regularly and love them but was extremely disappointed with this one. The hotel was obviously not full and we were put in an adapted room and the condition was not very good. We went down for breakfast and was very unorganised, when we asked for an omelette they said only cooked breakfasts today which was disappointing. When we went to check out no one on the desk so put key in box. Received a call to say we had not paid our Bill which we thought they had our credit card details so we had to go back. We wouldn’t stay at this one again

    Decent place

    Good place for a night or two. Rooms were spacious. Room and bathroom cleanliness could be better. Breakfast was decent, but took a long time for it to arrive.

    ZERO ON ALL FRONTS

    I booked, paid and was on my way when this hotel cancelled my reservation an hour before I arrived there. THIS KIND OF BUSINESS PRACTICE IS NOT ACCEPTABLE.

    Poor service but please don’t blame the staff!

    Macdonald hotels really need to get their act together and if they’re going to reopen hotels then ensure that they’re adequately staffed. Very disappointing levels of service are in no way a reflection of the staff, who have my every sympathy. There simply are not enough front of house staff working which means that service is very poor with long waits for everything plus standard food and drink items out of stock, equipment not working, the list goes on and on and, as one frustrated staff member told me “it’s been like this since we reopened on Monday”.
