3/5 Okay

Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service
Disappointing
Booked a superior room. Was given Room 231 which is as far as you can get from reception and right at the back of the property with a view of the kitchen staff smoking area. The WiFi was dreadful and kept dropping out. The shower was over the bath and not separate as described. The room was nice but I obviously have a different expectation of what constitutes superior. Was told on booking in that the breakfast was in the dining room but was moved to the coffee shop without informing us. Restaurant was excellent. I expected more from the previous reviews.
