On arrival, I have to say my heart sank. It's a bit of a monolithic concrete monstrosity, and on a rainy winter's night, it looked a bit dire. However, looks can be very deceiving!
The hotel has been recently refurbished, and to a high standard. Interior decoration is tasteful, and the rooms are spacious and very well appointed - big windows, free wi-fi, good bathroom, comfy beds, flatscreen TV and lots of plug sockets - a good commuter-type hotel.
The restaurant is in a big open plan lobby downstairs. No atmosphere, and a bit odd marooned in the middle, but the food exceeded expectations. The seafood is, as it should be, very good, and the breakfast was very decent. The only thing is that some of the restaurant staff could be more welcoming - some were lovely, some a little frosty. The bar is fine, but again, could be improved with a couple more beers on tap - the selection is a little bit limited.
However, these really are very small gripes. On the whole, I really like the hotel. Very good value for money, good food, and well appointed. Recommended if you are staying in the area.
