Nigel R. Couples - Confirmed reviews ALL

Very central location, on site (paid for) car parking. Nice staff. Room comfortable with nice view but bit dated (e.g. no plug sockets at side of bed).

Dear Nigel R., Thanks for leaving your thoughts here. The team and I are glad that you enjoyed your stay, and we’ve taken note of your comments and I will discuss this with my team. The team and I hope we can welcome you back to the property in the near future. Kind regards, Eric-Enno Snel General Manager

Good location.

Customer review rating 4.5/5

Ernest H. Couples - Confirmed reviews ALL

Accommodation very nice. However, as our room was overlooking a car park and near the entrance to the gym & spa, curtains or a blind would have been expected. Night drapes were fitted, but if privacy were needed during daylight hours, and it was, then nets or some such should have been fitted. To have passers by waving at you in your room is a little disconcerting. When I mentioned it to reception I was told,” none of the rooms have them” and it was treated as a bit of a joke. 99% of all other rooms have them

Dear H. B., Thanks for leaving your thoughts here. The team and I are glad that you enjoyed your stay, and we’ve taken note of your comments and I will discuss this with my team.

well located but so hard to deal with

Customer review rating 3.0/5

Douglas M. Friends - Confirmed reviews ALL

Housekeeping, reception and breakfast all good. Difficulty was expereinced with communication. Emails to the email address provided go unanswered and unacknowledged. Tried their unresponsive website that did not offer the available room configurations I wanted to book so had to present myself at reception to get anywhere. Luckily I live only 45 minutes away by car, but I still had to climb in it and drive to have conversations that are better served quite productively and less costly using email. From memory, I made at least 4 trips. Managed to get a quote for 6 rooms from marketing but then when booking at reception (because no one answered my emails) , duty manager refused to accept quote and increased price. I provided an email (that was not acknowledged so I have no idea if they got it or not) with a room allocation list and on check on half of our group called me to check they had a room becuase the receptionist could not find it. Eventually, which some guidance, they did. The hotel had the data, but didn't use it properly. This is no way to run a business. Good location but faded infrastructure. Crying out for a refurbishment, but those on the delivery side were efficient and did what was required. All that means I would think twice about returning and certainly check out other options before making that decision.

Superb location, everything else basic

Cameron Couples - Confirmed reviews ALL

The hotel is perfectly located at the bottom of town just behind the cathedral. The hotel itself is pretty outdated/ in need of renovation. No information book in the room, no complimentary water. Rooms creek with every movement of visitors in nearby rooms. Almost invisible staff who are reluctantly do basic tasks like checking you in or sorting the parking for you.

As others have mentioned, the hotel could do with an upgrade of decoration and fittings. That said, the bed was comfortable and facilities ok. There was a good choice of hot and cold food at breakfast and always someone on reception to deal with queries.

Disappointing

Customer review rating 2.0/5

Am Business - Confirmed reviews ALL

As others have said, hotel is a bit run down and needs a refresh. Bigger issue though is staff - when they're around they're helpful and friendly, but they didn't answer the phone for a room service request (6 tries over a 45 minute period) and nobody made up my room for the 2nd night of my stay. All in all, disappointing.

The staff were polite and helpful. The location of the hotel is excellent. Dinner menu very restricted during our stay and some refurbishment required. Overall was a reasonable stay but having stayed here before it was much better last time.

Sue B TripAdvisor review

Our stay was a very comfortable one, nice bed, super large soft towels and a very clean room, the decor a bit tired in the room but location made up for that as it’s central right by the Cathedral from sightseeing and shopping

I’m very grateful that you could take time to leave us your thoughts and write a review. I’m so pleased you enjoyed your stay with us, and we hope to see you again in the very near future.
