Very friendly and helpful. Had a great time. AC was not working in my room and straight away gave me a different room (a bigger room at that) and a free complimentary drink. Wouldn't get that service anywhere else. Thanks

Very nice spacious and clean rooms, staff are friendly, pleasant and very helpful. The restaurant food is maybe a bit average- which is a pity as it would be a top stay if for just a tiny bit more quality in the restaurant food and breakfast. The cost of parking at £15 a night came as a bit of a shock - but that is in no way the hotels fault, it is simply the cost of the city centre parking available nearby. Overall though - this is a good, clean, reliable and pleasing place to stay.
