This is a good hotel, with the potential to be a great hotel. Excellent friendly staff who seem to go out of their way to help visitors, especially those from abroad, which is a credit to the hotel and the city. Rooms very clean and spacious; 'common areas' on the ground-floor well-appointed and relaxing. Excellent breakfast with plenty of choice. The bar is a disaster: worn and uncomfortable chairs; sticky tables; only bitter beers on offer are fizzy and flavourless; almost £2 for a small bowl of crisps; and bar-food poor value for money (too salty and too expensive). The poor bar food is particularly surprising as the food in the restaurant is good, well-cooked and presented.
