Stayed here for 2 nights on business. The Hotel itself is OK ish. All of the staff were very friendly and extremely helpful. Location is great for the rail station and shops. The Quayside is within easy walking distance, but beware of the climb on the way back. We ate in the restaurant on our first night and the food was very good and reasonably priced. The downside of this hotel is twofold. No.1 No Aircon in the rooms, No.2 Street noise. We tried to sleep with the window open due to the heat but the noise from the revellers up to the early hours was extreme. The desk manager sorted out a room change for the second night and this was not any better. First room on the front of the hotel, second faced the side street. Ear plugs an essential!
