Ok hotel for a one night stay but wifi wasn't working in the room and poor in common areas, and hot water not always functioning

8/10 Very Good

Bar and dining room reasonable but breakfast leaves a lot to be desired. Stairs instead of elevator from ground entrance to second floor reception is a struggle for disabled guests
