Hotel requires a refurbishment.
We have stayed in this hotel many times and each time it seems more and more run down.We decided to give it one last go as admittedly the lower price is attractive however we will not stay here anymore until its had a decent renovation.We stayed in room 881 which has pipe work and cables showing and broken plastic trunking where the plugs are.The furniture is all very worn.Apart from the reception area the public areas are very tired.How it keeps its 4 star rating I shall never know.This could be and was a nice hotel but is in dire need of a refurbishment/makeover.Until this happens (happy to pay a more per night) we will not be staying here anymore.

Not recommended
Waited an hour to check in because they could find my booking. Booked a deluxe room. Told I was given an upgrade due to the wait. Still, it was just a standard room. Shower didn’t work properly. Breakfast was a disaster. Foam cups for coffee. I asked for orange juice, but they didn’t know what that was. The room was messy and disorganised.

Tired
Having previously stayed at this hotel quite a few times over 10 years ago, we were extremely disappointed with our room and will not be visiting again. The curtains were hanging off the rails, there was no headboard behind the bed or any pictures on the wall. It was like a student let - dismal! The only positive for this once great hotel is its location.
