First off, this is my second stay at this hotel. Previous reviews stating that the hotel is ages away from the centre is rubbish. There is a frequent bus service and it takes about 10-15 mins to get to Princes St depending on traffic.
At night I got a taxi from George St (East End) to the hotel and it only cost £8. So taxis aren't out of the question.
Didn't eat at the restaurant but I wouldn't bother, there's too many nice places to eat in the city. Oh and there's a huge Sainsbury's across the road for sandwiches etc too. Only negative is the lack of free wifi. Mobile reception is decent though so use your phone or pick up a cheap sim if you're not from the UK.
