On the website it states that the hotel has been partially refurbished however it omits to say that the parts no refurbished are terrible! On arrival we were pleasantly surprised by the modern, fresh and clean look of reception but that didn't last when we saw our room...it was VERY tired to say the least. Dirty old worn carpets, equally old and grubby bathroom and the furniture had definitely seen better years never mind days! The room was cold as the radiator needed bleeding and didn't heat up but banged all night and the windows let in more cold air than they blocked.
The positive notes are that it is ideally situated, very central but on a quiet street and if you stay over a weekend the parking is free until 8am Monday morning (if you can find a space).
We were really disappointed in this hotel and wouldn't stay again. We're not a fussy couple at all and didn't expect luxury but this was a step to low for even us. I would recommend checking if your room is one of the refurbished ones before confirming!
