You can easily walk from the main train station to this hotel. As you walk out of ticket hall, head straight across the road and keep walking. When you get to the river you will see a British theme pub on your right called The Bishops Arms. This pub is actually part of the hotel.
The reception is clean, but homely. This isn't a modern hotel, although it has all the modern facilities. Check-in was quick, and the staff were very friendly and helpful. The lifts to the rooms seem old fashioned but they do the job.
The room itself was as good as I could have hoped for. The view wasn't great for me, as all I got was a window opening on to the internal courtyard. Very limited selection of TV channels. Room service choice also seems very limited, although it features some exotic fare like Fillet of Reindeer if you are the adventurous sort. There is an ironing room on the 2nd floor, but as my room had it's own iron I'm not sure why that's there.
Breakfast was a plentiful buffet, but very much meat-centric so if you're vegetarian you will struggle. Quality of the food was excellent, however.
There is free wifi throughout the hotel and it is reasonably fast. Overall - this is a highly recommended hotel. However, it can be expensive especially if there is a big event taking place in town.
