    Staff was very helpful getting me in time to Harwich, with more nearby hotels being overful due to the volcanic ash fallout.

    Fabulous

    Location

    Staff rotates a lot! Due to this each staff member has very little knowledge and this knowledge is clearly not passed on to fellow staff members. On top of this staff tends to be unwilling to look into specifics unless requested to do do from the manager/supervisor. I don't understand why I should have to beg to find out why my late checkout can't be 2 or 3pm or if my room can be changed to a double bed (its the same price as a room with two twin beds). Ridiculous from a hotel chain as reputable as Ramada. I hope its just this location.

    My wife and I, were greatly impressed by the friendliness of the staff and their willingness to assist with questions. We were fortunate that our one day visit was not beset by parking problems but we were aware of the parking limitations` and alternative provisions nearby. The food was good and breakfast service was excellent.

    Nothing and having read reviews of the hotel, I find that the very few complaints difficult to understand and are made, I would imagine, by people who need to get a life!!!!

    Very good

    the location for the football was superb and the rooms were very clean and the price was very good.

    the pillow on the bed was a joke which spoilt the stay.I thought the bar prices were too expensive.

    The shower room was great. I happened to mention the room was for 3 adults and they had made up 3 beds for us which was a really nice thing to do, i wasn't expecting that. My sisters and i thought it was a really nice place to stay.

    Very good

    Convenient location, comfortable room, good wet-room & modern hotel facilities.

    Lack of pillows on bed{only 2 small ones) would have liked 4. Not enough on-site parking which means car park becomes very congested.
