We stayed as part of a large group attending a meeting. Parking is just beyond the main entrance to the hotel and the hotel itself is very central. Reception staff were efficient and welcoming and quite competently stored luggage for the group after check-out.
The bedroom is of good size but decor is very bright and stark. TV doesn't have text. The bathroom is also spacious with a good shower head. The bed is comfortable BUT the 4 pillows were all the same & as hard as a rock, impossible to sleep on, others in the group commented similarly. We don't like sleeping with the a/c turned on and the room was very difficult to cool, even with the window open, which brought some street noise.
The group had a set dinner, of average quality with a pleasant starter, a very standard main course and a very poor dessert. The staff were most helpful, especially a very friendly Gavin, but management need to be more involved and give guidance to staff who are trying their best. Breakfast was good but not outstanding. The bacon, in particular, was poor, as was the toast.
The hotel is overpriced compared to many around the country but for its city centre location you probably have to pay a premium.
