Our room (219)had a large shower and bath,...

The beds are what you would expect in a 5 star hotel. Value for money is ok, but by the time parking(if there's space available) and breakfast (£27 extra per night based on one car and 2 breakfasts) is added on the stay is getting on for nearly double the cost of other 3 star hotels in the area.

Location is just about as central as you can get, and the 2 male staff at the front desk were super helpful when it came to checking in and parking the car for us, a rare but much appreciated...
