Great location, great room, friendly staff. Would have given 5 stars but feel the restaurant let it down a little bit. Not much choice unless you're really into burgers and not much for kids. The queues at breakfast were a bit much, but on the whole, a very pleasant stay.

I stayed here for one night on a business trip. Modern hotel , efficient check in and a bar with a nice vibe. The rooms were clean and fresh. Lots to do in the area but a bit of a walk if you are looking for the main tourist attractions

Stayed here from June 19th - June 25th, on business. Fantastic hotel, staff were very friendly and helpful throughout my stay. Room was really good for the overall cost of the stay, and provided all the expected amenities. Location is good, close to the city and easy to reach multiple methods of commute.
