Great location. Room was small for two people, it was like a single room with a small double bed. Not practical. Bathroom light was broken. Hotel in need of a big renovation.

Decent room, comfortable bed, decent shower although little slippy when standing in bath. Check-in and check-out smooth and hassle free. Lack of parking wasn't convenient, but not end of the world (city centre so regular public transport). I'd say good value for money

Great location and view. Need more staff on the floor now lockdown is lifted. Had a long wait with nobody on front desk at check in. Staff very stretched.

Thank you for your review. If no one is on the desk it just means a staff member has popped away to help a guest. There is a phone and sign with instructions to dial 0 and a member of our team will come and assist you.

Claimed there was free parking online, however, there is no free parking. They give you a bar voucher after you hand the a receipt to them for having to pay for parking.

Thank you for your feedback. I'm sorry there seems to be an misunderstanding with regards to the car parking. We do state online that we do not have car parking at the hotel.
