                  Lovely hotel with a Thai Restaurant to boot!

                  Looking out of the room there was a lovely view. Breakfast was really nice as well. Staff were polite

                  Bed ws awful - pretty uncomfortable and not a great night's sleep. Despite the heavy glazing, road noise is still prevalent in the rooms at the front of the hotel.

                • Single
                  8.8

                  The room was very clean and comfortable, recently refurbished with a very comfortable bed. The staff were friendly and helpful. Good breakfast. Good value for money.

                • Group of friends
                  5.8

                  The Thai restaurant in the hotel was very good.

                  Poor location next to a main road; 2 lamps in the room didn't work, no waste bin provided; hospitality tray was not replenished; only one hand towel between two; reception on tv was poor and very limited choice of channels; no fruit or yoghurt at breakfast; tinned tomatoes and mushrooms with cooked breakfast rather than fresh.

                  Very comfortable beds and unusual thai inspired design. Food is good. View of pelaw monument

                  No wifi. Didn't accept cheques. Difficult to understand waiter in thai restaurant

                  Had to put the kettle on the floor to make a cup of coffee the lead was not long enough to reach the socket from the counter top.

                • Single
                  4.6

                  The Hotel is very dated and needs a revamp. The room I stopped in had a bath, but no shower, and not even a shower head on the bath to wash your hair, and also no phone in the room to phone reception. Very poor hotel really for the money. Stopped in a lot better for less.

                • Older travelers
                  7.0

                  The hotel was clean and the staff were very friendly. We had an issue with a blocked drinn in the toilet sick and this was dealt with right away which was very good.

                  It was very quite in the bar at nights.

                  The thai resturant being there the food was good and the staff very friendly

                  The area it was situated no mention of it being beside a main road

                  6.2

                  The hotel room smelled of asian food which was being cooked in the attached restaurant. The tv had only 4 working channels. Only one window opened .
