Very nice hotel not to far from the centre

Room is a bit small. Breakfast was chaotic on the first day.

central very friendly hotel

Enjoyed our stay at this city centre hotel. The staff were all exceptionally friendly and helpful. Very close to center for shopping. Great Breakfast very good value for money. Only downside was expensive parking at NCP even with 50 per cent discount. But this would not put us off staying again.,.

Great weekend getaway.

From the outside, this hotel looks quite ordinary. Doesn't help that there are roadworks outside. But inside is a welcome surprise. Very nice interior and nicely presented. Bedrooms are lovely and clean. Bed was comfortable, but would benefit from more than one pillow. Overall very pleased with our stay. Would definitely go again.

Nightlife tip: Long walk from hotel

Fairly long walk back, but with the road works going on, it isn't easy to stick to the pathways, so would recommend a taxi back.

Cold nights sleep

I stayed in this hotel in November 2011 and had an enjoyable time. Unfortunately the boiler had broken during this stay so none of the rooms had working radiators. The oil & electric heaters provided a little heat, however not enough to heat a twin room. Disappointed that we were not fore warned of this or given the option to rebook a warmer hotel. The location is easy to find and central for our needs after enjoying a stay the previous November.
