We stayed for one Saturday night. Our room was clean and comfortable on the 3rd floor. The hotel is in a great location to explore Union Street and surrounding areas. There were plenty of shops, bars and places to eat close by. The self-service breakfast was fine and included a good mix of hot and cold choices. There are a... More

Stayed here for a family wedding. Location is very convenient, right in the centre of town. Staff were very helpful and we were more than happy with our room, which was spacious and spotless. The only let down was the below average breakfast - however no big deal as there are plenty of cafes nearby.

Thanks for your feedback Bonemine Glad you enjoyed your visit and were happy with your bedroom although apologies that you were less impressed with our inclusive breakfast. There's some changes due shortly on a brand level in this area which will hopefully add greatly to the morning experience. Hope to see you back again soon. Kind regards Murray Todd General... More

Great location close to superb restaurants and bars. Rooms clean and well equipped. Only a few parking spaces on site so get there early. Bar was expensive and didn't have a great choice of beers. The breakfast was basic but ok. Good place for a city break.

Thank you very much for your review 37saxons Glad to see that you liked our central location and enjoyed your stay. If you're unlucky and don't manage to get one of our parking spaces, there's a multi-storey just 100 yards up the road with very reasonable overnight charges. Hope to see you again soon.

First time we had stayed in this hotel,it is situated down a side street off Union St,it didn't look particularly attractive at first glance but inside we were pleasantly surprised.The second floor room was similar to other Holiday Inn Express hotels,with one or two differences,the kettle and cups etc are on a wall mounted station allowing more space on the...

Great location for visiting town. Good customer service, when a set of keys were left after we had checked out. Only problem was the room was too warm, no air conditioning to help cool it down. Otherwise a good hotel. Breakfast really good too, filled us up for the day ahead.

Thank you very much for your comments Leona F Glad you liked our central location and appreciated the efforts of the staff. The warmth in the bedrooms will hopefully be resolved soon with the planned installation of air-conditioning as part of a wider refurbishment, hope this didn't impact on your stay too much.

I stayed here with my mum overnight. The room itself was brilliantly laid out, ideal for an overnight stay. The facilities seemed good, breakfast was ideal in the morning. The only downside was that the room was very hot during the night. This isn't down to it being sunny I may add as it was a miserable day on the... More

Overall was happy with the accommodation. The only huge disappointment for me was it was far too hot to sleep comfortable at night. Yeah you can open the windows but then you hear the seagull, so you still don't sleep.

My wife and have just returned from a pleasant stay in this hotel. The w/end cost for two nights including buffet b/fast is very competitive for a city centre hotel.
