Having requested a quiet room in the telephone reservation, extremely disappointed to experience 2 nights of very loud karaoke till past midnight. I know its a city centre hotel where you expect noise on the outside, but not on the inside to this extent. Reception say they have numerous complaints but the owners don't take any action. My advice give... More

If you do decide to stay at the City, make sure you are not in room 8. This is the second time we have been put in this room by Booking.com. We will not be back! Room 8 should not be a guest room: very loud ventilation shaft attached to our bedroom wall, karaoke noise directly under our bedroom window,... More

The single room was dirty ,bed and mattress was extremely poor , fittings dirty and very noisy. Parking a joke only 6 places. The curtains were just net so let all the light in, don't get a room at the top each time you stand up you bang your head. A total waste of money sorry Avoid....

I found the City Hotel to be an excellent place to stay when working in the area. The parking at the rear is a bonus as not many places in the centre of towns have their own parking. The receptionist was very friendly and helpful as were all the staff i encountered. My room, although only a single, was not... More

Stayed for 3 nights while visiting Driftland & had a brilliant time. Rooms & staff were lovely, breakfast each morning included in our price was really good & a lot of options beating any breakfast buffet! Recommended especially if visiting Driftland only 20 minute drive away 😊

You can park in the back and take your stuff up through the bar. Depending on what time you get there, it might seem a little shady when you do it because that bar gets packed. It's a climb to the bar then another climb to your room. However, the room was QUIET. You could NOT hear anything that was... More

Having stayed here before a year ago I was expecting the same again, sadly it was not too be. The room I was allocated for the 4 days was a small box room on the top floor, the sloping ceiling meant I could not stand up to us the toilet, and the bed was very small, after a long deliberation...
