Stayed here for one night back in October 2013 with two friends. The hotel itself difficult to fault! Excellent location, right next to shops and bars. Staff were fantastic, really helpful and friendly. Stayed in a triple room and the room was huge! The TV wasn't working at first but a call to reception and two members of staff were sent to our room within minutes to fix the problem. My only faults would be that the taxi we requested at reception clearly hadn't been booked as we were waiting in the cold for 20 minutes before we decided to call one ourselves and also at the hotels entrance you are greeted with a vast amount of steps. There is another door, around the side of the hotel, which is ground level with a lift up to reception, however unless you know of it, there is no notices to suggest that a lift is available just around the corner.
Overall though, great nights sleep and would definitely stay again!
