I've stayed a few time at the this hotel for business and one think I can say is that they are consistence in providing a high price low quality service. The reception employees are far from welcoming and friendly and everything is very robotic. The rooms are usually big and comfortable although outdated but there are unusual things in this...

Have stayed here many times. Staff are friendly and the rooms good with a working space and a good shower. Where it is let down is by the appalling internet access, so slow it's a joke and can't even connect to a vpn - which makes it useless for a business traveller.

Slightly further out of town than I would have preferred but good access to the road. Fairly standard style and standard for HI. Food, especially breakfast were good. Negotiate a free breakfast before booking. The gym/pool are well used by the locals as well as guests. Rooms were ok, no lift so be prepared to carry bags up one level...

Comfy room, spa facilities pretty good (sauna, steam, jacuzzi) and the breakfasts were outstanding! All staff members great - overall very impressed. It is worth the price for seeing the pancake machine in action! Just one thing, the heating was on full blast when we arrived in our room about 4pm - seems a terrible waste if all the rooms...

An overnight family gathering of thirteen just after Christmas could not fault the hotel. The rooms together with all the facilities, quality of food, pleasant and attentive staff were excellent. All the stops were pulled out and nothing was too much trouble which made our get-together special. A big "thank you".
