I stayed here for one night in July 2010. I booked through Trip Adviser and Expedia. The hotel was very easy to find - signposted from main road. Reception was courteous and efficient. A slight gripe - although I had booked room only they wanted my credit card for extras, a practice I dont really like. They did tell me how to get breakfast if I changed my mind. The lift was just behind reception and listed times at which the breakfast room was busiest.
The first floor corridor to my room was very bland, with subdued colours, carried on into the room. This I thought was generous, with a ample bathroom (possibly because it was adapted/provided for a person with disabilities) and good modern furnture including 2 hanging spaces. The hospitality tray was adequate, and a stocked mini-bar was a surprise. The toiletries were of good quality. The toilet rolls were slightly double thickness!!
The bed was a good size, comfortable and so I was able to have a pleasant stretch out. But the gap between the two single mattresses was pronounced and the pillow didnt give me adequate support.
The room was clean and the curtains effective.
The television was flat screen but the choice of channels was limited (12) - there were single French, Spanish,German, Italian and Russian channels - there was only 3 radio channels. Internet, and films could only be accessed for £9.99 a day - a bit expensive. CDs could be accessed for 99p each.
The best thing about this hotel is the location - less than 5 minutes gentle stoll from the City Walls and the Car Parking. Advertised as £6 per 24 hours, on departure give you a ticket that allows exit. This is a real plus for a City where car parking is at a premium and prices are commensurate.
