Rooms really big with wonderful bathrooms (BIG rain showers). Free wifi with (as far as I can tell) connectivity to as many devices as you need). Located in a modern upmarket shopping / restaurant area. So within 100 yards all sorts of places to wander round. Highly recommended.

The hotel itself is a bit overstyled, and I found the lighting in the room a bit wacky especially when all I wanted was white light to work under. That... More
