Really good room and amenities. The restaurant and bar was excellent although breakfast could have been better, the food was not hot off the buffet and the toasting devices were slow. The pool and gym was well equipped. Location is excellent.

The room was clean and spacious, location was fabulous and the staff were friendly. I did not to enjoy the location as I was attending a meeting all day, but you literally step out to a lovely water-front setting and are up the road from shops etc

On a road trip this was an overnight stop. We just called in on the off chance of a room as the location was excellent and we were checked in by a very helpful receptionist within 10 minutes. The apartment was enormous and well stocked. The balcony was huge and with sea views. That said we felt the whole place... More

Have stayed at this hotel several times. Usually select a 'riverview' room but on this occasion took a cheaper room. We were pleasantly surprised that the room was of similar standard. Close to the elevators but very quite, sunny in morning, opening windows. If you are willing to pay more, go for the riverview rooms, the higher floor the better... More

Room was extremely comfortable and well set out. It was clean and given the hotel was full it was very quiet. Not a great view overlooking the car park but that didn't matter really. The staff were efficient and were welcoming.

The rooms are quite spacious. My room was at the back so the view wasn't so good. Very comfortable. Staff were amazingly friendly and couldn't do enough for you. Great dining at the restaurant and great room service.
