We stayed here during the first week of the F`ringe festival. So the room rates were huge, but the hotel is located within walking distance of pretty much most of the major sites – the castle is just a 10 minute stroll away, the train station is approximately 20 minutes walk. So perfect to enjoy the festival, and the sites.
The room was fairly large, comfortable room for a city centre hotel, the only thing is that the bathroom is quite small in comparison to the room, and the separate toilet is more of a cupboard. It was also good to have the pool and gym facilities when is was pouring down with rain. We didn't have breakfast as we had some great local recommendations, Urban Angel and Spoon.
The reception staff were friendly and helpful, the only thing is the parking, the hotel only has a very small car park, so we were directed to the nearest 24h parking facility which was about a 10 minute walk back to the hotel (uphill). But the car park was safe and secure and only £7 for 24h.
Overall a good hotel in a good location.
