Excellent facilities, top quality food, and the room was very comfortable. The pillows were the most comfortable pillows I've ever had! We were delighted with the standard of the room and the service for the price we paid. We will definitely go again.

Very good value in the Macdonald hotel complex. Great facilities with cinema and swimming pool and selection of restaurants. Clean comfortable rooms, a little cramped as we had the sofa bed down as well but still good.

Took a second payment without authorisation. Now we have bank charges as we're overdrawn. It was our 10 year wedding anniversary. Oh and the fire alarm went off twice with no explanation at 0830 on Sunday morning
