A very average stay
We stayed in room 12. Room was basic and lacked any effort to give it personality or interest. No pictures on wall, coloured cushions etc. Room was also dark due to window/door layout. The room was clean which was positive and the breakfast was tasty. Housekeeping was disappointing, on the first day they left no towels and when I asked the evening manager he was very put out at my request for some. On the following day they dragged my suitcase into the adjoining room (I assume to clean) and then never put it back. We didn’t use the gym. Slightly away from main waterfront area (15 min walk) but area was OK. With some effort from the management team this could be a great hotel but it is currently very average.

Good family accommodation
Good, two room family apartment at the back of the hotel, which included all the essentials. Comfortable beds, and good service from the staff. I was in town for the marathon and the hotel even offered breakfast at 5am for the runners which was a nice royal touch.

2/10 Poor

Don't stay here
The hotel was one of the worst I've ever stayed in. There was no heat, no remote for the tv and no soap in the bathroom.

6/10 Good

the accommodation was actually incomplete for occupation on arrival. Although the bedrooms of the apartment were all spacious and comfortable, the lighting was very bright which compromised the ambiance, it was a bank converted to accomodation It was meant to be self-catering, however the kitchen was not equipped for self catering. Overall we were comfortable and generally clean,
