    Everything brilliant but please fix the door cards!! I’ve stayed here many many times and the standard is consistently high. Staff are helpful and friendly, it’s spotlessly clean, reception areas are too class, bathrooms always clean with… read more

    But please sort out your door key cards!! I had to have mine reprogrammed four times on one day! I don’t mind standing in my boxers at reception after being locked out of my room after going to the shower. I have a gorgeous body, but it might put off some of the other guests! Another couple had to reprogramme their card three times on the same day. This happens every time I stay and it’s the only negative. I’m very careful with card clash and keep my card in a special holder. Please guys sort this out then it would be absolutely perfect!! More
