This hotel is ok but the two things I did not like were,
(1) the hot breakfast items are not very appetising as they are kept in small dishes below a heat lamp, which dries out the food especially the bacon and srambled egg. it is also expensive for the the variety offered which for £10 is poor.
(2) As a lone traveller I prefer to order room service, but beware there is an over the top tray charge of £5 to deliver it to your room. Most hotels charge a reasonable £3 for this service.
I also found that the sensor operated lighting on the corridors is useless as they dont come on when you most need them, the whole corridor does not light up when you get out the lift only the area that you are standinging in. Single female travellers may find this alarming as the corridors remain rather dark especially at night.
The hotel public areas seem tired and that they need re-decorating but the rooms are comfortable enough. The room service food was fine and bar prices for a hotel were acceptable.
The entrance to the hotel is rather tucked out of the way in a back street.
I would stay again but through its location not its attraction.
