    Disappointed with food

    The hotel was lovely excellent check in, lovely rooms, comfortable beds well serviced on a daily basis. The gym facilities were good. Breakfast was good. The food in the Globe bar was really good on the first night and on the second night of our stay we dined in the Globe restaurant and the food was terrible from start to finish. We expressed this to restaurant management.Food overcooked and tasteless.

  • 6.0.Good

    Needs improvement

    The hotel reception staff were very friendly. The bar staff were okay one young girl waiting on us at dinner was lovely but there was 8 of us at dinner and everyone got there dinner at separate times 2of the adults with us got their dinner over an hour after us even though we told the 3times. The dinner did taste good. The room was clean but unbearably hot we couldn’t sleep a chocolate bar on the bedside locker was liquefied by morning. The staff at breakfast was lovely but the food was awful except for the toast. A lady did ask our opinion on the food but we hadn’t the heart to say it I think the plates spoke for themselves they were all full of left overs.

    Staff were great, room was excellent, food was average. Parking should be included bit of a joke that you've to pay extra after paying for your stay. Other than parking issue I really enjoyed my stay.

    Excellent stay

    We had a funeral to attend in the city and needed to stay in a hotel and this hotel was perfect. Very friendly staff, very clean, we felt very safe. We had dinner in the restaurant and the food was excellent. We would definitely recommend this hotel.

  • 8.0.Very Good

    Hotel was spotless and great service as we were on essential visit for hospital appointment with my little grandaughter. Location was only 5 mins in car from hospital. Would stay here again, but would ask for different room as we were kept awake for over an hour from people shouting and fighting on street below , as there is a hostel directly across from where our room was.
