Good6.0
First stay
Nice hotel, lovely in reception, small rooms in an ideal location. Bar is bar & restaurant and we were refused a table as we hadn’t booked. The other bar wasn’t open so we had to search out alternative pre-gig. We were only looking for drinks and lite snack so that was a 👎

Room Service Problems.
Room service was appalling, waiting an hour and a half for food, some of it was cold. Very poor indeed. Apart from that every thing else was of good standard.
