I really have to give this hotel five stars because it exceeded all my hopes and was great value, but in doing this, I have to admit that not all rooms may be as good as that given to us.
We booked the cheapest so were expecting a shared bathroom. We must have been upgraded without them telling us because we walked in and found a lovely ensuite bathroom. We were clearly lucky here. I also expect that some of the rooms might be noisy, though I can't be sure. The hotel is in the very heart of town and backpackers, young 'uns and yobbos do some very serious drinking not far outside. However, we had an inner room and it was beautifully quiet. Lucky again, I know!
Reception was very helpful and efficient. Wakeup call came through right on time and there was no-fuss friendliness.
Room was very clean, beds were comfy and the room had everything we needed. Unfortunately, as we had to catch a train before 6.30 am, we could not avail ourselves of the free brekky, which we would have liked, but we felt we more than got our money's worth and would happily stay again, hoping for the same luck we had this time.
