Really pleasant stay at the Penta Hotel. The staff were friendly, the rooms and hotel were amazing. Plus they had a 24 hour Gym and it was extremely clean, and well equipped. The breakfast was amazing, and they offered a wide variety of food. Would be more than happy to stay again.

The hotel is brilliant! Easy to get to and close to everything. I was staying with you for a week, the only bad bit is the wifi, it wasn't strong enough. But other then that the staff were so friendly, happy to help aat anytime. The housekeepers so nice too. Would recommend

Check in staff disinterested & not very friendly. Décor in rooms "funky" Air conditioning was very noisy but useless. Thought my booking included breakfast so shocked to have to pay £15 per breakfast which was a good selection & quality but feels expensive.
