Date of stay: January 2020Trip type: Travelled on business
the hotel is reasonably priced but in a location where there is a lot of traffic, yet at the same time there are many shops, supermarkets and restaurants in walking distance which is a good trade off to get that bustling live atmosphere, parking is available and there is plenty and safe.
the rooms are overlooking a football pitch where the games are loud and go on until late at night, there is also a disco in close vicinity which means for business travelers there is not much chance of getting a restful nights sleep.
the rooms are well equipped with everything that is needed, but the beds are very very hard and within a few days caused me back pain.
the breakfast buffet is good, varied and plentiful as is the ala carte menu for dinner.
staff on the most part try to be helpful, unless there is something outside the norms and the housekeeping guys will help with whatever is needed, if in a gruff manner.
used the laundry service a couple of times and it was quick and well done.
there is a small gym and pool onsite which are average but have everything for the normal person to work out.
overall an average stay, helpful staff mostly and good food, but the noise and uncomfortable beds means i wouldn't stay again
Room Tip: as far away from the football pitch as possible and with the quilted mattress for optimum comfort
