This hotel is undergoing major external refurbishment. It may not be a problem at this time of year I.e. short days to have only a view of scaffolding and netting. The downside to the central location is that it is not the most accessible if arriving by car. The front of the hotel is pedestrianised and the back immediately outside the hotel is a bus lane. If you do mange to unload your car outside the hotel there is an NCP car park nearby and the hotel has organised a discounted rate of £10 per 24 hours. Hotel reception is on the 2nd floor. The journey from the hotel to the car park involves (at the hotel's suggestion) driving along a bus lane. If you are arriving by public transport the location is ideal, not far from the station and in the centre of the city. The room was adequate and justified its midweek rate.
