Great location, reasonable price

Pros: Reduzwan (sorry if I got the spelling incorrect) from Reception was exceptional, and very kindly organised a surprise birthday cake for the mrs.
Hotel is in a great location, near to the main attractions but just far enough not to be very loud or busy. Staff were very good in terms of friendliness and service. Decent breakfast choice and room amenities. Would highly recommend!
