They were very accommodating. There were no bathrobes in the room, but one call and they were delivered immediately. We needed a later check-out. They gave us an extra hour, but then, since the hotel wasn't very busy that day they extended it for another 3 hours. Really nice staff.

  • Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities

Fantastic location and excellent staff. Lovely room and modern, clean bathroom. The decor wasn't particularly to our liking as it was very dark in the reception area and the corridors. We were unfortunate to have a disturbed dog locked in the room next to us for a couple of hours. We applaud the dog friendly policy of the hotel but maybe they need to vet the owners!

  • Liked: Cleanliness, property conditions & facilities
  • Disliked: Amenities

Myself the group I went with were upset with the $25 fee a night they required for amenities none of us used. No one used the gym, the pool, and many of us didn't eat at the hotel restaurant and would have preferred to have paid for only what we used. Also, the pool was reported to be cold by many of the guests even though it was supposed to be heated. My room was awkwardly organized. The closet opened up right next to the bed with no room to walk around the closet doors to get access to clothing. The iron was broken. The TV was tiny and way too far from the bed. The curtains were very difficult to open and close. Also, I was charged a total of $437 on top of the cost of the room. I confronted the front desk about it and they told me that it was a $100 a night hold on my account but couldn't explain the additional $237. They dismissed it and said the money would be returned to me. This STILL hasn't happened yet and I am about to initiate a charge back if I don't see the funds returned by this weekend. This hotel was on my companies recommended hotel list for the region for my companies 1500 employees. I am going to make sure that is no longer on the list so no one in the company stays at this hotel.
