Hotel was so well run. Couldn't have been better. The food was excellent. Its great for friends, families or couples. The staff were very friendly and on arrival we were upgraded to a Club Room which was welcoming.

Good size room. Powerful shower. Comfortable bed. Small TV. WiFi worked perfectly. Excellent buffett breakfast in the morning. Polite staff. I didn't use the spa so cannot comment on that. Great value at £74 for one night B&B for two.

I stayed here with my mum and two sisters, the service we recieved was outstanding. My mum is disabled and the staff went out of their way to help us but in a really understated way which completely put my mum at ease. The hotel offers excellent value for money with the restaurant offering fantastic quality staff. Love everything about...

Just returned from a weekend break at this lovely hotel which is modern clean and extremely well run. It is located approx 15 min walk to the city centre/cathedral area. Check in/out was smooth and when we asked to change rooms as the original room, 119 at the back of the hotel, overlooked the air conditioning units and was a...

I have just stayed for 2 nights with friends, we had 2 rooms. At check in our rooms were on different floors but when we asked the receptionist if we could have rooms nearby, she immediately managed to do it. When the air con didn't work in one of the rooms, the receptionist immediately found an alternative room and later...

The hotel is situated about 10 minutes from the centre so the location is great. The room was comfortable and clean and breakfast was sufficient. We had massages in the spa which were very relaxing. I can't comment on the rest of the spa - I asked if we could have robes after the massages so we could go straight...

Location is excellent, really close to the town centre. The room was cheap so I understand that there were no views, so that was our own choice. Bed was good, we slept very well. Spa... Hmm. I don't know what to call it, hardly "spa" anyway. One hot pool and one small swimming pool. Turkish steam room and "sauna" next...

I visited this hotel with my husband to celebrate our anniversary. When we first arrived we were shocked that we had to pay for parking (£7.20) for a night stay. The receptionist who greeted us appeared bored and wasn't very welcoming. We went to our room which was fairly basic which was fine as it was what we were expecting....

Overall, my wife and I were very impressed: our room was modern, clean and very comfortable; and the breakfast was excellent. (The breakfast-room was buzzing given that it was midweek). The bar area would make an excellent pre-wedding rendezvous point. The only two downsides would be: i) car-parking for about 9 pounds overnight is steep - it's a shame this...
