Staff were excellent and friendly....made dinner bookings for us, attended to heater when we could not get it to start, and explained beautifully why the smoke alarms all went off one night...by accident. Very much appreciated an upgrade. Central position...our unit opened to the garden.

Room very small, dark, terrible layout. No air conditioning. No TV in room, had to pay additional for parking. Had to catch two lifts and cross a car park to get to room. Leaking wet car park with visible electricala close by.

Excellent room, unbelievable view from our room. Only downside was the narrow staircase from the door up to our room (the view did make up for it)
