I'm staying on business for 3 weeks and was given the impression this was a grand hotel. It's a shame because it is in a great location in the centre of town.
My first night was unsettled, twin beds pushed together as a double no great.
I reported that my room was cold that night and asked for an extra blanket in my room as the heating seemed faulty, arrived back later that day and neither the heating was fixed or a blanket in my room, back to reception and a blanket and electric heater was provided. Breakfast selection is okay but the English is not up to much.
I'm also glad I'm not paying for parking at £13 a night it's not cheap. The corridor floors squeak and moan as you travel through the hotel and the room needs some TLC. Lastly the tv channels are limited and not even the usual freeview stuff.
Given a choice I would try somewhere else next time.
