Neat upbeat hotel
Neat upbeat hotel. Staff was friendly and the hotel was clean. Attached bar open 24 hrs and the restaurant food was pretty good. A bit further away from nightlife than I would like. It not an unreasonable walk or cheap taxi.

Overpriced & Oversold
Wouldn't recommend due to horrible customer service, cheap rooms and poor location.

Up-market Youth Hostel
An upmarket youth hostel run by youth workers dressed in hoodies and jeans. Bedding is not ironed and rooms not made-up in the morning. Significant lack of soundproofing in rooms with inter-connecting doors which means you can hear everything in the adjoining room. Food service is slow as a single waitress tries to balance taking orders, getting drinks from the bar and clearing tables. Breakfast from 08.15 looks as if the locusts have been so if you are lucky enough to find a clear table don't get your hopes up for a great breakfast as the single waitress tops pot's up individually! Many hotels charge for parking and there is an alternative car park, however, if you are registered disabled and have no choice it makes an expensive stay.

The staff and chef were very accommodating toward two vegans! The hotel had a nice cosy atmosphere

Nice hotel but the food is very poor quality!
The breakfast service costs £15 each. The hot food was cooked to order but took a long time to recieve. Not good quality and the other food available was dry or not very well stocked by midway through the breakfast service. Not worth the money paid!
