Despite a mix-up with our booking I found this a great place to stay - excellent central location, but not noisy. Courteous, friendly and very helpful staff (that all seemed to speak fluent English).
We had a very nice suite with a fold out bed for a child in the second room.
The room was nice, a decent size - recently refurbished I think, bed very comfy, even the fold out one, 2 nice big flat screen tellies with some extra channels (although picture not brilliant), coffee machine, you could open the windows and adjust the radiators. Bathroom stylish - although the shower was more style than substance. Room service was available 24 hours and didn't seem too over-priced.
Very nice breakfast.
I had a few small niggles which I think were mostly related to the room being given at short notice due to the booking mix-up.
Parking seemed a bit pot luck - I think the hotel wasn't busy as we managed to get a free space in the small hotel car park down a lane at the back.
Not cheap, but good value I think. Hadn't skimped on the things the budget hotels have cut out - still has things like writing paper in the rooms and sewing kits.
