Stunning views from the restraint are the main selling point. Otherwise it's just a very efficiently run hotel with decent facilities. Room was good size but the noise from the corridor at night and early morning was annoying. It could do with improved soundproofing.

My wife and I visited the restaurant for dinner on a hot and sunny day in July. The large picture windows need to have blinds/shades fitted because it is too sunlit and hot - it was like sitting in a 'greenhouse' with an excellent view...More

Thanks for choosing The Heights for your recent visit. We are sorry that you felt the temperature was uncomfortable. With recent temperatures exceeding 28 degrees externally at some points, this was, unfortunately out of our control. However, we do ventilate all facilities as much as...More
