Coming from using 4* hotels this was a fantastic hotel. The receptionists were friendly and knew when every bus/excursin coach would arrive. Free wifi in lobby and dining area (option to pay in the room was available) fo personal devies but they also had a desktop in the lobby should you wish to use one (i assume it was free).
Location was 5 minute walk from city centre and there was a large 24/7 local grocery store behind the building (equivalent of a Teso or Sainsbury's local). Breakfast was great, really good pain au chcolates and crossants omlettes however were quite weird.
The only mistake they made was giving us a twin room insteadof double however as the room and shower was very clean (and I mean spic 'n' span) I was happy to not ask for the double as the twins were already put together (plus i enjoy my space).
There are two restaurants outside the hotel and having visited te trendy restaurant I was impressed. I had lasagne and g/f had cod with couscous-very nice. Do remember all meals range fro £10-£20, there are no cheap meals out there.
