      Very misleading

      Please be aware when booking this hotel that the rooms shown on the website and Hotels.com are very unlikely to be the room you are allocated. In the hotels.com photos (not the ir fault, they come from the hotel) you see modern rooms with plush navy headboards and modern art. The reality of our room was very different, dated and quite sad. We spoke to a very helpful man at the front desk who gladly moved us to one of the new rooms of which there are only a handful. If, however, the rooms are not concern, the bar and reception areas are lovely and the location is great, food in the restaurant, however, is not. It's ok but that really is the best I can say of it.

      5/5 Excellent

      The location is excellent to reach from the train station as well as access to the city. We stayed in the new section and the room was excellent in every way. Staff were friendly and always helpful.

      5/5 Excellent

      Decor was stylish without being overbearing, room was very comfortable and very quiet being at the end of the top floor in the new block with everything we needed although a real coffee machine rather than instant coffee would have been preferable. Location was perfect although parking was very expensive. Hotel staff were exceptionally friendly and polite and very knowledgeable. Restaurant was also excellent and the quality of food superb. Really enjoyed our stay.
