        Quiet, non smoking

        Not the hotel's fault. But some men left their doors open when in a state of undress _ scary (both day and morning).

      • Family with children

        Booking staff were very friendly. Bathrooms were clean.

        Beds - very uncomfortable. I have compared it with other hotels we have stayed in internationally and locally (same price and we slept on quality mattresses).Cleaning staff were very noisy. We woke up from the cleaning staff cleaning the rooms next door at 8:30? We felt rushed to leave. Linen - The duvet inners were not placed in the covers. The covers were just draped over the inners? Yuk - I don't want to touch the scratchy inner in the middle of the night. Even the kids noticed this. Air conditioner did not work. Radio in second room did not work.

        We dined in the bar as it was sunday and we had very nice food,

        The breakfast was really dull and half the food did not seem fresh..

        Location

        We choose this hotel of the internet. The pictures shown were nothing like what we had presented to us. The hotel is dated and tired and I did not consider it to be value for money. If it wasnt for the fact that we were only in the room for a very short time, I would have complained about it at the time. There was nothing superior about this ",superior Studio"

        The hotel charged a 4% fee for using a credit card that wasn't described when booking.

      • Older travelers

        Location was reasonable

        Theposition of the room at the side of the hotel near rubbish bins made it unattractive. It looked run down and I felt uneasy before entering the room The room appeared to have been renovated at some time. However, it failed as bathroom basin was a kitchen sink in a disfunctional kitchenette. The double bed was too small to be a double bed. It was uncomfortable for my husband and I even though I am small.

        The linen was good, and the beds and pillows were lovely.

        The room smelled odd, the room was very dated, and the fridge was extremely small - too small for anything really. Some other rooms in the hotel were considerably nicer than the one I stayed in, for not much of a price difference. For a hotel of this brand, I expected a nicer stay.

      • Older travelers

        It suited our needs for a nights stay for a wedding.

        I thought the room would be better suited with the single bed being on opposite of room as no room to get into queen bed on right hand side

        THe Kingsgate was most convenient for everything we wanted to see and do.

        Outlook from studio units, rather bare, but unavoidable, with carparking needed.
