I have used this hotel for a couple of years now & have to say I have never had a bad experience.
The rooms are boutique style, spotlessly clean & well presented. The beds & pillows are comfortable & the rooms contain tea & coffee making facilities, an ironing board & large flat screen T.V's.
I always make sure I book a luxury room (£63!!) which are just that bit larger & have a few additional features. I find the hotel very quiet at night & I always sleep well. I never hear the Wetherspoons at all as it is quiet a big building with high ceilings & it seems to absorb the noise of the pub.
The staff are always very friendly & attentive & greet you with a warm welcome. Any problems are dealt with immediately in an efficient manner.
The Wetherspoons pub is ok but is looking a bit tired & ready for a refurb, but it is a very busy city centre pub with a good selection of real ales & the usual JDW food selection. The Wellington pub a few doors up the road offers 15 real ales & there is a fab Thai restaurant directly opposite which comes highly recommended.
Parking is free on the side of the road after 7.30pm up to 8.00am & I there a several spaces around the side roads very close to the hotel. I Don't bother with the NCP car parks as I have always managed to find a space on the road & if you arrive before 7.30pm you just pay from your arrival time up to 7.30pm. (6pm - 7.30pm is £3).
Overall, an ideally situated, city centre budget hotel that knocks spots off many of the other larger city centre chain hotels, both in quality & price !!
