This property is close to our offices which are outside of the city centre so was really handy The hotel has 2 blocks and the main one houses the restaurant, reception etc Apart from a bit of traffic noise at rush hours it was great Breakfast is simple but adequate

We just enjoyed 4 nights at Clarion Hotel with breakfast. The staff were fabulous especially the man welcoming us at breakfast. The only negative I have is don't choose a room on the main road. Plenty of room to move around in the rooms.
