We stayed four nights at the beginning of our holiday and as this hotel was booked through our travel agent we were not sure what to expect. The location was great, close to the busy city centre but far enough away to be quiet. Right next to the lovely Roma Street Park and a short walk to the train station. Be aware the hotel is up a hill.... you may wish to walk down and taxi back up but there is an excellent bus service right by the hotel. The front desk staff were VERY helpful, polite and obliging
The room was beginning to look a little shabby but the twin queen size beds were very comfortable. The view over the Parklands was lovely. There was a wee balcony and good soundproofing! The blackout curtains were great, I wish every hotel had these. Unfortunately the eco lighting was very dim, difficult to find somewhere to sit with light good enough to read. There was a huge wardrobe but the bathroom was quite small. The door opened hard against the toilet which proved a little difficult until one got used to it! Nice products in the bathroom and lovely fluffy towels. The room had all one could require and was quiet, comfortable and clean although a little dusty in places. Breakfast was a bit expensive but very nice with a good selection (let down only by the worst cup of mass produced tea I think I have EVER had!) There are also several restaurants in the local area.
A negative was the very strong smell of cigarette smoke wafting into the lobby from the outdoor courtyard area which was full of smokers. This meant the Lobby and Courtyard were not nice places to sit and relax and the pool environment wasn't really "people friendly" either. The Spa pool was freezing! Despite the few negatives (which could so easily be fixed) we did enjoy our stay and would reccomend and return.
