we stayed here on business trip and there were more low points than high points. Our room was cramped and didn't have AC. The window opened only 5 inches. It was hot and stuffy all night. We needed desk space but that wasn't available in our room - had to go to the bar with laptops. The wifi went out...

The Best Western is in a great location. However it is very tired and needs a makeover. The outside looks nice and is clean. Staff were polite. However the rooms were not up to standard. We have to change rooms three times to get a decent room.

Comfortable, above-average facilities in a very convenient yet quiet city centre location. Well-appointed bar-lounge and restaurant. Very good staff service. Ensuite bathroom felt a little outdated (may be time for a refurb?), but overall facilities are more than adequate.

Stayed one night as the start of a bus tour. The staff were very patient with coach passengers wanting different things. Room was comfy and quiet and modern (recently renovated?).

Noisy factory type noise coming from outside our room. "King bed" was essentially two single mattresses pushed together. When queried about this, was told by staff on duty (who obviously didnt want to be on duty because it was a public holiday) that "all our King beds are like this theres nothing I can do about it".

You can pretty much access all the attractions in the city by foot. Staff were friendly and accommodating. The bathroom could do a bit of renovations though (bathroom tap was old, but usable). Other than that, I like my room and would stay here again.
