We stayed for two nights and found the hotel to be very good. Our room was very nice, the décor was good and modern. Although we didn't have a particularly great view (overlooking the air-con fans), it was actually really quiet. Also good was the fact that we didn't hear any other guests whilst in our room (i.e. from next door or people walking down the corridor). My only gripe was that the cleaning in the bathroom could have been a little bit better. There were water marks on the marble sink top & bin lid which hadn't been removed when we checked in and were not cleaned off whilst we were there (just a swipe over with a towel would have got rid of these). Also there were marks on the wall (toothpaste splashes?) that were not cleaned. Just points to a slight lack of care and attention. We were in a room which was quite a long walk from the lifts, which didn't bother us, but if you have trouble walking very far, it might be worth mentioning when booking!
We got a great deal from Hotels.com which included breakfast. Standard buffet affair, but good for filling up before heading out for the day. Although we didn't have dinner here, which did have a couple of drinks in the bar when we arrived, which were extortionately priced as is the norm in hotel bars. I would suggest trying the Pig & Fiddle over the road, where we had the same two drinks for half the price.
The location of the hotel though is the main draw. It is just a few minutes walk into the centre of town and all the tourist attractions are walkable from the hotel. Parking is available at The Podium car park directly underneath the hotel. There were plenty of spaces when we were there. The hotel validate your parking token which means you only pay £15.00 for the duration of your stay, which for us was great as once we parked we didn't need the car again until we were leaving.
All in all I would go to this hotel again as the location was good and the staff were nice and friendly.
