Not expensive for the value you get that's why I gave it an excellent rating. You can use the swimming pool. The only I didn't like is that I woke up late the next morning. The checkout was at 12. I called and asked the reception to give me an extra hour and they told me it will cost £10.... More

Nothing more than 3 star hotel. The parking is difficult to find and in addition the allocated lots are very narrow, it is expensive. The hotel is central and not convenient if you have to go to the university, the bus 19 is just around the corner but during the peak ours it is a never ending wait.

A great hotel for family travel - the kids get their own play area and there is also complimentary iMac and Xbox access in reception. The restaurant is bright and... More

The hotel was spotless, wellness center was included in the room price and the staff was always great. The breakfast was to die for! Full English and continental from 7:00 to 11:00 (never seen that!). We had a great stay and will be back if we have the chance!
