Right in the centre (so bear that in mind if you expect a quiet night!) great for a weekend away and not bothered at all by road noise as expected it being in the city. There are a small number of parking spaces onsite, with more avaliable in a public carpark nearby.
Staff service was good, check in quick and requests for extras delivered promptly. In particular, the F&B Supervisor looking after us the first evening (Had a two day spa package which included a brilliant pizza buffet) and in charge of the breakfast room on the first morning was both efficient and friendly and seemed to work twice as hard as everyone else!
The standard of the bedrooms and public areas are what has knocked down my overall score - at first glance the lobby is grand and impressive, but when you get closer, you start to notice the dust all over the chandelier, dirty mugs and litter all around the coffee station in the lobby and bizarre plastic/leather seating. The bedrooms, whilst cleaner than the public areas, seem lacking in comfort - giant kingsized bed with one flat pillow per person, and vast areas of space with little to no furniture, made the room feel like a prison cell! Not even an armchair to sit in.
I would return to this hotel, for its location alone, but only if the price was right as I wouldn't want to pay 4* price for a hotel which, I feel, is more three star.
