    Your staff ! They were very friendly, helpful and efficient.

    The hash-browns served at breakfast were not nice. Too greasy and tasted as though they were out of a packet. Fresh hash-browns would be a lot nicer.

    Very good

    It was central and the staff were pleasant and helpful.The foyer with music late afternoon was a welcome touch .

    We were unaware we could not open the window for fresh air as we both are not keen on air con ! Also .....relaxing in the foyer it is a bit disconcerting to see so many people use it as a thoroughfare to go from one level to another at the end of the day !
