We read T/A reviews on this hotel before we booked and all seemed largely positive.
The welcome on arrival was very friendly and the staff were excellent throughout our stay.
The breakfast was excellent in a lovely room looking out onto the aquare in front of the hotel.
This is where things go a bit downhill, the room itself. Although it was very clean it was a bit of a let disappointment. The bed and funky tv were obviuosly a recent addition but the rest of the furniture and general decor was dated and bland, it reminded me of a care home for the elderly. The bathroom was tired but very clean. The water pressure needs addressing as the shower was a dribble and the toilet had to be flushed several times before it did anything.
I understand that some of the rooms have been updated as the hotel is under new management so if our room was a bit more upto scratch I would give a much better review as the overall experience was good, the room let it down.
I have to add that the room was very quiet for a city center hotel and the location is fab.
Thanks to the staff who made our stay a good one!
