This hotel was ok without being amazing. The price we paid was reasonable and given we got a washer/drier etc included was an added bonus rather than a feature we were looking for. The bed is a double bed, so relatively small, and is on wheels which is quite annoying, plus one of the legs was broken so we had...

Rooms were ok and staff were helpful and pleasant but the area around the hotel is very noisy. Lots of trucks very early in the morning. Garbage trucks every morning while we were there so not very peaceful early morning sleep. Not much the hotel can do about this but if you don't like to woken up early think twice...

Thanks for your review. I'm happy to hear you found our staff helpful. We are working with the property mangers of our neighboring buildings to ensure trucks are not making deliveries or removing rubbish before 9am. I have been assured by the respective companies that this will not be an ongoing problem. Kind regards, Natasha Pennell

I've stayed at this hotel a number of times now but had not stayed for at least 6 months prior to my latest stay. The staff remain excellent and the housekeeping is very good. I like the location and the decor/set up of the rooms. A few things were better eg the grey make up towels are a great addition...

Pretty central once you understand the bizzarre route into town..........through a car park and down one floor in the lift!! Room was adequate with all required features.

Thank you for your feedback. I'm sorry your experience fell short of your expectations, I've been in touch with the manager of the neighboring hotel which has the bins that were emptied unusually early.

Noisy room onto a car park and woken up by bin lorry. A very central location and very good value for a city centre room. Very useful washing machine in the room. Room was a little cramped. Staff were very friendly

Better value than a hotel dollar wise and so much bigger than a hotel room. Nice to have a lounge area, kitchenette and a washing machine/drier. Location is good and only a short stroll to the main streets and attractions. Very friendly and informative staff. Great place to stay

A good basic hotel at a great price. It's down an awkward back street, but on arrival you get a handy brochure with photos to show you the way without all the steps.
