The hotel is quite old, the rooms are fine but the dinning options are very limited and not up to the standard of other hotels of the same chain Service is ok but still compared to other branches I would say it was the poorest

Unfortunately, lately I started to encounter problems which will drive me away: First of all, despite having stated the importance of having a quiet room (from previous stays in this hotel, I know that many rooms in it are noisy because...

The ambience is a bit stale and dated, but the rooms are clean and comfortable. The food in the restaurant is first class with a choice to satisfy all tastes. Location is a bit out of the way for the city centre.
