Good location, good staff with great ambience. Definitely worth the money!! Stayed here for 5 nights, had a chance to have dinner once, lovely fish and chips and a glass of red wine, just what I needed. Would definitely recommend staying here and would definitely come back and stay here myself.

I have stayed here many times and have been well looked after. I have always been comfortable and the staff are very helpful. I am allergic to garlic and the chef has been great in adapting meals for me for which I am very grateful.

I felt welcomed as soon I arrived, the facilities were perfect. I didn't have the pleasure to dine with you but I will next time. I've stayed in 5 star hotel's around the world for many years and you are on my return to list. Thank you for a comfortable warm stay.

We booked this hotel to enjoy a night away in the city, knowing from family feedback that the hotel boasted a great location whilst actually being a really nice place to stay! Neither was incorrect, this hotel has a really nice feel to it, from the moment you walk into reception it feels warm and welcoming. The reception and communal... More

Great location - very central. Nice rooms and hotel. The traffic outside was a bit loud all through the night, but sort of expected that from being in a very central location and some of the other reviews people left.

Fabulous room and Bed. Service was excellent and nothing was too much trouble. Will definitely be staying again and recommending to others. Hotel was ideally situated for nightlife as well as the train station and shops.

Arriving at this beautiful hotel the first thing we noticed was how clean and tidy it was. The receptionist Chris however,was rude, abrubt, and made us feel that we were inconveniencing him by checking in.

Reasonable staff, great location, bathrooms not clean, street and club noise way too loud. Hotel staff know the noise problem but nothing they can do other than offer you ear plugs. Hotel failed in many areas

Hotel was nice but right in centre so if you want to go sleep before 3:30am you might struggle here with the noise from the street outside and I was on the 2nd floor. So I wouldn't return but hotel was ok
