Google Reviews

About Google Reviews: recently Google has converted their review system to require reviewers to have a proper, identifiable Google+ profile. This is a good thing, as it tends to cut down on bad reviews, both from people unwilling to stand behind their comments and fake positive reviews from the businesses themselves. Old, pre-Google+ reviews are still in the system, and will appear below as written by "A Google User". More info from Google is here.

Review:   We were more than happy with all aspects of our stay. Staff were great, Room was clean & tidy just what was expected. Breakfast was enjoyed on 3 of the mornings we stayed. Nice & central we walked to our conference at another hotel 10 - 15 minutes away. The early check in at about 8 in the morning was much appreciated as the weather was wet & cold that day. Thank you all for a lovely relaxing stay.

Review:   The hotel is centrally located and was walking distance from everything I needed, including my work-related activities. The room was clean, comfortable and functional, and the staff were friendly and helpful. The only issue was that the room overlooked the main road and if the window covering was open the window faced directly into the offices across the street. On the plus side, the windows were sound-proof so once the covering was shut at night, I wasn't fussed about it. I would definitely stay here again.

Review:   The hotel staff were lovely. I found it strange that at check out time there was only one concierge on the desk. I wasn't in a hurry, but clearly others were. As a Silver member of Accor hotels I was also surprised that the staff were unfamiliar with the benefits I could receive and didn't believe me when I told them I was entitled to a discount on my evening meal from the night before. The room was adequate and the food was fabulous. I will be back

Review:   The first night was uneventful with a smooth check in. The second day a large group of children checked in a it immediately became extremely noisy. The girls were in the halls talking and even yelling down the halls. It took three calls to the front desk over the course of several hours to get results. I was offered a different room but not until I had already retired for the night. I even used earplugs and the noise was still quit intolerable. Not a pleasant day at all.
