In all fairness this was booked last minute as part of package deal so I can't complain much.
The reception staff are friendly and courteous, the rooms themselves are clean and well kept but fairly minimal in terms of extra amenities such as a safe, minibar, bath (shower only).
All in all its a nice little hotel for a small package deal but not what I would call a luxury city break. For £30 a night yep it's fine but not when your getting towards £80 a night - you can find much better deals .
The only thing I would say was a huge disappointment was the £12 a day car parking fee for the hotel and a very poor breakfast. The croissants were stale, pain au chocolates soggy, bread for toast was cheap (weird one to explain).
