Our 4th visit to hotel arena. It's a classy stay, perfect location as it's away from the main busy areas, but only a 10 min walk to gey into town. Amazing rooms, lovely new hotel entrance through the park.

I've been here countless times despite the building works, but they are almost finished and it's a great transformation and the staff are charming, efficient and very accommodating. The rooms are big, lots of style choice and the bathrooms have hot water!
