Very convenient for the station ( 5 minute walk) and only a 10 minute walk over the bridge to the main centre. It is tucked away in a featureless street and there did not seem to be much in the way of dining options nearby. It was very quiet - I had a room overlooking the council offices and had no external noise disturbance and very little from inside.
Everything is clean and well kept, the room was pleasant with good lighting and the bathroom well designed (wish more hotel showers had taps like these, that you can turn on properly before getting into the shower) Good wifi.
I usually really like Hilton beds but this was a bit hard and the duvet cover was disappointingly rough and scratchy - seemed cheap. Also, have never experienced a badly made bed before in a hotel - the sheet was not tucked in on one side and the top and had been so unevenly laid on the bed that there was not enough material to do so. I had to remake it as it lifted off when I turned back the duvet, which was irritating.
Breakfast was self service - I had low expectations from a friend who had been there but at least there was some fruit ( albeit mostly tinned). Coffee undrinkable. All a bit motorway service station but it was fuel.
Pleasant staff, though keeping a customer with a query waiting so that stapling of invoices could be completed was not professional.
Minor point - there is an odd snack station between the ( empty ) bar and the reception - stock should be checked, as all of the bags of crisps I could see were out of date.
At the special offer rate I had of £56, it was good value for money.
