The rooms at the Hampton are generous in size, clean and well appointed. The hotel is well situated and it only takes about 20 minutes to walk into the city. If you don't want to walk then the bus stops just outside. The staff provide good service and are happy to help. We dropped into the bar on a Friday night; interesting crowd.
As a post script, if you are staying for a few days there is a small laundry where Morehampton Road divides and becomes Leeson Street. The lady who runs this place is lovely and they do a good job in cleaning your clothes.
