Purchased via the Groupon website. Ideal Christmas present my sister absolutely loved it. The hotel and spa area was clean and the afternoon tea was really nice. The hotel staff were friendly and helpful. The only thing that could have helped score it 5* instead of 4* is the spa area only had a small gym, small sauna, small swimming...

This hotel is located an easy five minute walk from the railway station and pretty much everything else. Very courteous and attentive staff, nice lobby, restaurant and room. Really nice and clean.

A nice hotel in a very central street. It is only a few minutes walk away from the train station and is across the street from the main bus and tram stops. The information centre is very close by too. Our twin room was on the small side but clean and comfortable. We were on the 4th floor so it...

A lovely little hotel close to the station. Staff were excellent and very friendly. Booked breakfast on arrival for the next day good value at a reduced rate of £10 pp. Christmas markets were an extra bonus we were not expecting. Really good.

Stayed here for one night while attending a function in the city centre. Couldn't really find much fault. Reception staff were all friendly and helpful; bar staff a little less so. I had booked a small double at a very reasonable rate, so certainly couldn't complain that the room was a little small. In fact, given I was staying only...

I stayed for one night last night in a twin room. From the moment we arrived the staff where lovely, and helpful. The room was not massive, but there was ample room for two of us. It was clean well serviced. You can hear some noise from other rooms, but it was not excessive. I would definitely stay again.

This hotel is located very close to the train station so if your visiting by train it is great, the bar area and food were all good and staff friendly.
