We were on business and the hotel was booked by an agency. Unlike other reviewer's experiences, we found the staff friendly and welcoming. Our room was spotless, although a little smaller than a Premier Inn room. The bathroom was well appointed, and had a large walk in shower which was great. How many people have a bath these days? The only problem with the shower was that it was not well designed and had caused water damage to the bathroom door. Staff told me that there are plans to address this problem.
We didn't have dinner there as it's a pizza/snack type menu, but breakfast was OK. There was a hot option, but only sausages and scrambled egg etc. There was no bacon.
The location was excellent, and both the city centre and the Quay (where there is a wide variety of restaurants) are within easy walking distance. The advertised tariff was £136 which would be grossly overpriced, but the on-line price was £63, which was good value for money. We would stay there again.
