We stayed here in July when my partner had a course. The hotel was chosen as it had a carpark and wasn't too far in to the city centre. I'm still undecided if it's a b and b or a hotel though. The size of the place and facilities and rooms say hotel but as there is no bar or bar area or restaurant it also says b and b.
The place itself is lovely, very modern and clean. With staff being so helpful that nothing was ever a problem. Always happy to help in tellig you how to get somewhere and keeping our bags late on day of departure and dealing with our hire car company as they were late in picking the car up and we had to leave.
Breakfast was perhaps a bit ott for me. Presentation was lovely but very fussy. There was a great selection of breakfasts from cereal to toast, porridge, salmon and full fry with many others in between. I had a fry the first morning but wasn't keen on the buttered soda scone,the minute potato scone and peppered cherry tomatoes, it was more about the presentation than the taste I felt. next day I had bacon and toast and it was lovely.
The hotel isn't just on the door step of the city centre, maybe I was walking a long way for a short cut. But it took me 20 minutes to get in. I walked in and back each day so not sure how much a taxi would have been. but cost £10 to the ferry docks so cant imagine it would have been too dear.
Overall I would stay here again the place and staff were lovely, I would bring comfier shoes for walking into town and have toast and bacon for brekie and I'll be sorted!!
