Hotel has excellent location, right in the middle of shops and restaurants, and near to railway station and buses. Very good if you do not have a car. Our room was large, and had three single beds, as we requested. Room appeared dark, small windows, which did not open, and not enough lighting. We were at the front, over the club, but noise was not an issue, possibly because we could not open our windows!
Bathroom was large, but again, not well lit, and the fan did not work. It was very difficult to find a good spot to apply make up. We had a complimentary bottle of wine each day, but 3 different size glasses, 2 large and 1 small, every day. Why?
No face flannels supplied, but towelling bathrobes were!
We did not have any meals at hotel, as it seemed very expensive. Our breakfast was not included, but this was no problem at all, as we were a stone's throw from many restaurants, snack bars etc. We tried somewhere different each day.
We very much enjoyed our break, we had some lovely meals and did a lot of shopping, but I have stayed at better city centre hotels for the same money.
