This hotel is in a great location in the middle of the city and easy walking distance to most places and just a few metres from the main tram station. I expect this hotel was once very grand indeed but unfortunately it is now just very, very tired.
It is clean, which is essential, and the staff at reception, the hotel bar and also in the restaurant at breakfast were very polite and helpful but the paint is yellowing, the carpets are stained, the enamel is wearing off the sinks and baths and the decor inside the rooms is dated but not dated enough to make it attractive in an antique-y/stylish way... think artex and 80s!
What I do have to say though is that we booked through a Groupon deal that was good value for money (bed, breakfast and a bottle of wine each day for 2 nights at £79 for two - not each!) Given that we were on a short city break and weren't expecting to do much in the hotel but sleep it met our needs (just) and the deal made it less disappointing!
