Dear Martin I am sorry about your experience over the Christmas period. I believe there was some miscommunication regarding the restaurant booking, and I am sorry that you did not feel the food was up to standard. I would like you to come to visit the hotel again and meet our new manager and myself, we have already made improvements...

Ok so the rooms and features are dated and the wifi in room 69 is intermittent but I feel it necessary to applaud great customer service when experienced. Aaron who is was working the night shift (alone by the looks) on December 30th provided outstanding customer services in the small hours when it was needed. He is a credit to...

Ceri, I am surprised that this review has been left. We are sorry about the incident with the aftershave but as you are aware we have dealt with this issue. Unfortunately, our manager was on holiday during your stay, but as soon as the message was passed on to me, the issue was dealt with.

I have no issue with staff but training is clearly needed for matters of emergency. My room was clean and tidy but quite dated. Sink was cracked bath very low. If I had to I would stay again but not as my first choice. When reading this review remember this hotel needs updating but serves the purpose for overnight stay....

The hotel has been updated with sensitive concessions to the past. The food in the bar was good, the bedrooms well appointed but low beams can be a hazard for the unwary. Pleasant cosmopolitan staff who make you welcome . Good value . As ever it fulfils the role of staging post
