No 4 star, but 3! The place is a bit outdated and the room altough big enough could have a bigger bathroom. We had a room on the streetside and the noise from the traffic is quite loud. At first we thought the window was open... The breakfeast was ok with enough to choose, but the hot stuff was cold.... More

Stayed here for 5 nights during a trade show. It was nice enough, but way overpriced. Very close to restaurants, local train station, and shopping. I ate at the restaurant one morning and it was decent enough, but there are many better options for eating close by. There was no hot water one morning.

This was a late booking, only one month ago, but, is very clean, central and easy to find. Good internet, not many UK - TV channels, but who cares. Check in was easy & smooth. The hotel was cool and did not require an AC, though raining in September, so can be normal. Took a Taxi from the railway station... More

Stayed here in late July during one of the hottest weeks of the year. Most of the rooms in this hotel do not have A/C but it is not widely known.

No air-conditioning in rooms 409, 411 and 517. The temperature outside was above 30C and there was no breeze at all. The hotel was apparently full, but we were able to change one of the rooms.

I know the weather was unusual, but this was hot! No aircon in rooms and no way to create a breeze. If the windows were left open then the noise of the street and the metal bins across the road woul keep you awake. Breakfast very good. Waffles, a nice exrtra. Staff all good.

The beds are good. The service is good. The breakfast is pretty good. The hotel itself is pretty small. The bar offers approx. 6 tables. I did not try the restaurant. In general the whole hotel appears to be a bit out of style but it offers all typical comforts of a Holiday Inn chain hotel.
