Hotel exterior could do with smartening up. Gives a poor first impression. Flower planters with dead flowers etc. Inside is nice and clean and tidy. Friendly staff. Rooms are clean and spacious. Not so much storage though and the bathrooms could be updated, although they're clean and nothing was falling to bits.
Food in the restaurant was decent, service could have been better and it's expensive for the quality.
Breakfast was much better, generous and well prepared.
The fitness room is clean and there's one of everything you might expect. A treadmill, stepper, bike, rower, abs rocker and free weights bench. Hotter than the devils armpit in there though so take water.
Hotel is situated within 15 minutes walk of the city centre making it really accessible. A short walk in the other direction leads you to a historic windmill and lovely park to spend time in so location is great.
