The good: you are on a quiet street but very central and just around the corner from the restaurant chain which owns the hotel, where you get breakfast and reduced prices on other meals. The so-so: I was given a check-in time of 2 pm but when I turned up was told I could only check in at 3 pm; staff meeting us were distinctly unhelpful and brusque, in consequence of what seems to have been their error. Breakfast on day 1 was banana bread, stale, with frozen butter which would not melt, although the other breakfasts were good. The bedroom door was too heavy for my 9-year-old son to open by himself. The bad: really, this is not a hotel, it is a bed and breakfast with inflated prices. No amount of effort could make the shower, on a different floor, run anything either than freezing cold or boiling hot so washing every day involved a damp towel. All in all, the place came across as an afterthought of the restaurant, with guests which at the price we were paying was a bit upsetting. It wasn't unbearable, but I'm not sure I would choose to return.
