Balcony and view was lovely. The bedroom interior was clean and comfortable. The breakfast was nice. The ice cream was delicious
The balcony and balcony table and chairs were covered in cobwebs which wasn’t very welcoming. It’s a shame as it really was a lovely place to sit in the evening with a nice view. The meals ordered from room service were not nicely cooked. Burgers dry, bread dry/stale, chips undercooked. Salt shaker on tray was empty. Had it been cooked better cooked it would not have felt so overpriced for the meal.
I loved the room in new building. All was perfect UNTIL the weddings started. Couldn’t sit on the balcony we paid more to get. Far too noisy. People smoking drugs and cigarettes. Swearing ect. Don’t get me wrong. I love a wedding. But when you notify a hotel you need a relaxing weekend due to being very unwell.!!! It makes a massive difference when your spending hundreds of pounds.!!
Don’t stay in new building if there’s a wedding or function on. It’s far too noisy and you can’t sit on balcony you will pay for
No air conditioning
decent overall stay.
Room too hot, no air con. Shower wasn’t powerful enough.
The room was well laid out with a really good shower. Very clean too and bed was comfy. Appreciated the complimentary bottles of water.
Breakfast was expensive and only the continental part was buffet.
