Currently on my second week staying at this hotel and on balance a positive experience.
The good: Reasonable rooms, clean, tidy, fair size, comfortable bed, good hot shower, good breakfast, free parking, free wifi, friendly staff that deal with an issues, the DART station is right opposite (when it's running)
The not so good: Location is a little out of the way for tourist central, but I'm not here as a tourist. The hairdryer is annoying. Their is a fan or aircon running somewhere at the rear of the hotel that vibrates the headboard, grrrrr. The fan noise stopped at 21:30 but the vibration continued I've got earplugs but last week noise from other guests is bad at night and in the mornings - but the hotel can do little about that, but when a party was getting out of hand the night staff address it very quickly (great job).
The bad: nothing really, good value and good hotel for the price.
Very nice to see the hotel has reacted to comments about road noise. I was in a front room last week and with the window closed there was very little sound at all.
