Very 3 star hotel. Bar unwelcoming and small, directly located in town centre with buses driving past front door. Newly refurbed. Rooms teeny but modern. Shower good. Bed comfy. Problem with sleeping. Hotel overlooks town centre. Lots of noise from revellers at night. And hourly time check from clock tower - midnight was the worst! 12 bells. Slept fitfully between bells. No minibar but hair dryer was better than my one at home.
