Recent reviews

Good 7.2 From 289 reviews

Fair 4.0
We had high expectations but were quite disappointed. Nowhere to park car as car park full. Room was cold and not very clean. Curtain hanging off rail. Looked out of window and all we could see were roofs at every angle which were that close we could have touched them. The shower was tepid and tempremental.

Hydro Hotel
The receptionist wouldn’t budge on 3 o’clock checkin. Should have read the fine print pets allowed ok with me but in the breakfast room? There was no fridge in the room and a television the size of a postage stamp. I didn’t know they still made such a small portables. The room was in the older part that had not been renovated. Needs an update. Bed was comfortable and breakfast was very good.

Beautiful views
It was a lovely stay, the hotel was beautiful and the views were fantastic. The room was quite small and basic but the views from the room made up for it. They also served a decent breakfast!

No room with a view
We booked a room with a lake view for a 2 night stay which we paid for in full in advance. On arrival we were given room 4 which we went up to expecting to find what we had booked a lake view. The room didn't have a lake view so we returned to reception to be told we could change rooms the next day but there were no rooms available with a lake view for our first night as the hotel was full. We received a refund of 30% of our bill for the inconvenience but our stay was spoilt as we didn't get what we booked a lake view.
