This is a typical city centre hotel catering for business people as well as tourists. Our room was on the fourth floor overlooking the car park, which was no problem as it was probably quieter than a room at the front of the hotel. The room was adequate, with all the facilities that you would expect. The bathroom was modern and very compact and had the tiniest sink I’ve ever seen. On our first full day, the room wasn’t made up until mid-afternoon, which was bit inconvenient. The breakfast choice was very good and plentiful. The main problem with this hotel is the public rooms, if you want somewhere to sit and relax, there is only a few seats in the reception area, there isn’t a separate lounge area. Internet access for those of us without WiFi and or own laptop is also in the reception area where people were walking past to the coffee shop all the time. The bar is open to the public and quite frankly is scruffy and not what you would expect for a hotel of this grade. We didn’t try the restaurant in the evening, there are plenty of places to eat around the Octagon which is within easy walking distance.
