Been here a few times (was considering it as a wedding venue back in 2010) but I have to say that I've not been a fan of the food here. Everytime I've tried it I've not found it very nice (maybe I'm too critical?) and just seems to be missing "something". The service is good, though. Staff friendly and helpful... More

Big city centre hotel, My wife and I stayed just one night arriving very late one evening and leaving very early the next morning. Accordingly we didn't have much time to look around. Our room was very large and the bed very comfortable. The upper floors apperared to have been recently redecorated. Because we were leaving before breakfast the hotel... More

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

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
