I stayed on business a couple of times in August 2014. It's conveniently located for the centre of town/shops. Everything is ok, nothing significant to complain about (or to get very excited about). Breakfast was very good, the evening meal menu and bar are a bit uninspiring though. The staff are pleasant, but basically functional. The room was very clean... More

We paid £375 for 2 nights in a premier room ( 2 x double beds), with full breakfasts and all overnight parking. Room - clean, well sized, 2 double beds, large flat screen TV, mini bar,large table, bottled water provided plus tea... More

We stayed here for one night. It is located right in the heart of downtown within walking distance of many attractions and near public transportation. The beds were comfortable but the hotel did show signs of aging. The windows were not double-paned so there was a lot of street noise in the room. The pool was very nice as well... More

This hotel was an overnight stop on our tour so I cannot really comment on the location or what was nearby as we did not have time to explore. We had a large room with a safe, hairdryer and excellent air conditioning. Bed was comfortable. Dinner was provided at the hotel and it was not good. The steak was fatty,... More

We stayed here in July 2014. It's probably 15 minute walk from downtown area. There are lots of restaurants nearby (pubs) as well as a restaurant in the hotel. There's a bus stop right around the corner from the hotel - we took the "Hop On / Hop Off" service here - but there are also city bus service stops... More

I have visited this hotel many times over the last few years and I can honestly say it is consistently good. The staff are usually great and check you in and out quickly. I usually manage to grab a room via one of the search sites and get it much cheaper than their normal rates. Paying the discount rate, I... More
