Had a great time during my stay! The staff was very helpful and friendly, and I couldn't have asked for a better location either. Right smack in the middle of things, most of which were within walking distance. Would definitely stay here again :)

Staff were very friendly and helpful throughout the stay, 24hr reception is good. Everyone spoke perfect English (or were British/Irish) which was very... More
