Great Value deal
Reviewed 8 hours ago

Really enjoyed our stay. Meal on the first night in the restaurant was absolutely lovely with great service. The staff at this hotel are the most helpful I have encountered and we travel a lot.
We came to celebrate my sons 21st birthday and the staff were really helpful setting the breakfast table ready for 10 of us and didn’t make us feel unwelcome at the finish of breakfast service which we really appreciated. The breakfast is excellent quality. The bed is a standard double but comfortable. Good linen and towels and good hairdryer provided. Ice machine available which was useful.
Great position in the town.Very close to train station so some noise from trains but didn’t bother us If you drive in you can gain access by driving past the hotel and taking the left lane to go to the back of the hotel where there is a car park for £8 though it is locked up overnight.Useful for unloading as double yellow lines outside the hotel and quite busy.

Very nice hotel and would highly recommend

Upon check in the reception staff was very welcoming and friendly. The room was spacious and would definitely recommend a high floor room for the views. The bathroom was very big but could do with some heating in there as the floor is tiled and very cold first thing in the morning. Slept very well as the bed was extremely comfy. Tea and coffee facilities are provided as well. The breakfast was very good. The selction was varied which included cereal, fruits, and cooked breakfast. I would highly recommend this hotel and will definitely be staying here again.

Great location very central to the city and shops with a fabulous view of St Mary street and Christmas lights.
Great spacious clean room shame the beds and pillows were rather uncomfortable and not enough towels placed in the bathroom for 3 persons that were booked in.
