Hotel was nice enough but overpriced for what you get. Comfy bed and had what I needed. Shower pressure was shocking and water trickled out of the shower head.

EFFICIENT BUT COLD

Pros: Location
Cons: Room heating.
Location: Ideal for an overnight stay if you are going to an evening concert at the Ligfhthouse.
It is in a very central location near the Lighthouse Concert Hall. The Pizzas in the restaurant are delicious and the free breakfast is good. On both our stays our room was uncontrollably cold so come well wrapped up.

Central location

Pros: Location
Cons: Room heating control seems a bit slow.
Location: Lighthouse shows are 5 mins walk away.
Ideal for an overnight stay for Lighthouse concert-goers. Efficiently modern. Delicious Pepperoni Pizza worth waiting for in the Bar/Restaurant. Good breakfast buffet, plenty of fruit.

Great hotel, close to town.

We arrived and were welcomed warmly. The lady at reception was very lovely. Our room was spacious, clean and modern, the beds were comfy and all we could have wanted. In the evening the bar staff were lovely and helpful. There wasn't a great selection at breakfast and admittedly we were quite late in getting down to breakfast that the choice of cooked breakfast was a little dry. That would be my only negative, otherwise we would stay here again.
