Not 4 star standard

Very disappointed with room which was not 4 star standard. Very outdated, shower in bathroom almost antique. Needs refurbishment. Ordered poached eggs for breakfast and had to wait 20 mins for them to arrive only to have to send them back as they were closed. Husband asked for coffee and this never arrived. Not what you would expect.

Nice Hotel, but noisy

Hotel was pleasant, rooms were nice and comfortable bed. Only downside of this Hotel being on the main road. Did not get much sleep at night, it was noisy and the windows are not very noise proof. Taxi rank outside seem to enjoy beeping there horn until late. Mentioned it to reception, but the lady didn't seem interested. Shower was cold first night, but this was fixed straight away. Breakfast was ok. Left my phone at the Hotel, this was returned efficiently.

The best thing about my stay was...
