I stayed here November last year. From start to finish this was a most enjoyable experience. I only stayed one night and wished I could have stayed longer. The staff were incredibly helpful in all ways, especially when I asked for directions to the hospital, as I was in the city for an appointment. They even went so far as... More

We really enjoyed staying at this hotel. You will have a restaurant, bar, music and outdoor sitting area all in one place. The hotel is conveniently located off the square which makes it easier for shopping and enjoying the park. Parking is not so great as we had to park and carry our bags to the hotel. Hotel staff was... More

The only thing going for the hotel is central location. We stayed one night during race week. My partner believed that the disgusting 250 price tag was the going rate that week. It was not. There was cheaper, cleaner, higher quality hotels in the vicinity. We realised our mistake 10 hours the wrong side of the free cancellation deadline. We... More

Meant to write this some time ago ... I'm sure you know how it is. Had my daughter's 21st after dinner party here and some of us also stayed upstairs. We had dinner elsewhere and then started the party from 21:30 hrs to close. Part 1 - the bar and catering staff whom looked after us were really helpful and... More

Everyone at the hotel, from the folks at the front desk to the wait staff at the pub, were exceptionally accommodating, friendly, and just over the top helpful in whatever you needed. The central location to bus/train stations, car rental, shopping, dining, site seeing, was great. The hotel was freshening the paint during our stay which showed a brightness in... More

This was a midweek stay, so the hotel was lovely and quiet at night. Our room was exceptionally large, and was very clean. The location is ideal and a car would be a nuisance. Staff are also friendly, and willing to help with information. All in all, a great choice.

Right next to 4 pubs- loud and people outside the front until 3AM - really loud - yelling, singing and partying. Room had not been vacuumed. Bathroom had hair and dust under the vanity and in the corners of the ceiling! Wi-fi shut down twice. Shower needs to be replaced or redone: grout was old and yellow, rusting all over.... More
