The property is well located but seems to be undergoing modernisation, the lifts are being updated/repaired raking out half the service and causing huge delays, there was a large event on, and the bar was understaffed with inexperienced and slow staff, the rooms are ok we received an upgrade to club but really nothing special for the price, breakfast was very poor quality cooked food

The property is in need of refurbishment. The heating temperature in our first room would not go below hot, so we could not sleep properly, then the toilet handle broke and we had to move rooms. To add to our problems, when we got back after a long day our new room key would not work. Staff are great and the food is good but our visit was spoiled.
