    Location

    The hotel is in serious need of updating - the facilities are very dated and sheets, towels etc threadbare. Bathroom was not clean - build up of mold in shower - yuck. When checking in you are asked to "prepay" for certain items in order to be able to charge to room - unnecessary and offensive since they have my credit card. Also, charge machine was down both when I paid for dinner and when I checked out.

    Great location

    Pillows were quite poor, look like they need replacing. The tv channels available were not paticulalrly good, very limited on what was on offer. Check Out was quite slow, not the fault of the staff member but the fact that he was on hos own at peak time, could have been resolved by having less staff in breakfast area, which is self service, and more on desk.

    Location

    Room was very small with no air conditioning.We asked for a bigger room because we were staying for 2 nights but were told there were none available even though we had requested a large room when booking. Everyone had to leave their room from 10am _2pm because of work being carried out. We were informed of this by a notice on the lift!

    Only the location

    I was very disappointed with the staff service and the food was terrible

  • 7.4
    Very good

    Location was excellent.

    I had requested a view of the castle,but did not know that that was extra, so declined to pay more for upgrade. The room that we got must have had the worse view of the whole hotel, back of rooms and fire escape.After requesting nice view , we got NO VIEW!!!
