I booked this hotel for one night on business as the area was where I needed to be the next morning. Some of the reviews are a bit mixed so I was a little concerned.
However, all was well. We were greeted warmly on arrival and allocated our rooms without fuss. I had a single room (which I generally dislike simply because I prefer a double bed) but space wise, the room was fine. It was compact, and it had a single bed, but the room was by no means cramped and also had a desk and chair for working at.
The bed was comfortable enough, but maybe I'll book a double next time and just suffer the extra cost.
The bathroom was clean, modern and well appointed, clearly its been refurbished in the not too distant past. Shower cubicle only, no bath, but that suits me.
The hallways can be a little noisy but I wasnt troubled by any outside street noise at all. Earplugs are a good idea though if you are a light sleeper, you can hear other doors bang closed.
A decent flat screen TV and tea and coffee making facilities in room completed a reasonable package. WiFi was free which is always excellent and they gave 2 passcodes for 2 devices, again, a nice touch.
Breakfast was buffet style with eggs being made to order, certainly enough of a choice but as noted on other posts, it's not pork bacon thats on offer. No real issue for me.
Overall, I'd certainly stay here again when back in the area but a double room would be better if you are staying more than a single night.
