This hotel is advertised as a boutique "style" hotel in the city on their website, it is certainly NOT a boutique hotel in any "style" that I have ever stayed in, it is much more of a conference centre with rooms, absolutely no character at all internally or externally and it is a good 15 - 20 minutes walk from the centre of the city. The bar terrace (posh word for a patio) is in the carpark and not just any carpark but a municipal coach park, so we sat eating lunch while people parked the other side of the low level wall and at one point a boy racer did a couple of circuits with his window down and music blaring out, which isn't the hotels fault but the location does lend itself to it. That said the room was very clean and perfectly OK, nothing really special or outstanding but it did have a very comfortable bed. Although we were suprised that a 4 star hotel had a pretty rubbish shower and a very flimsy shower curtain not a glass screen. The lift was broken when we stayed which was a nuisance as we were on the 3rd floor and actually quite a walk from the reception. I would do an overnight pitstop style stay here if I wanted clean and ordinary at a reasonable price, but not if I wanted city centre, boutique or anything over and above ordinary.
