I stayed here during a visit to the Volvo Ocean Race in July.
There are so many positives about this city centre gem:
The location- second to none. 2 mins from the train station and a stone’s throw from Shop street.
The staff- notably helpful and friendly. This fact really made it stand apart for me.
The rooms- very very modern, clean and comfortable.
Noise levels- considering it’s Eyre sq location and proximity to niteclub, there was little or no noise- the rooms are sound proofed etc, the windows are clearly treble glazed!
The only reason I didn’t give it 5 stars was because the corridors and common areas of the hotel are a little jaded. That said, i would without hesitation stay here again. Although we paid a little more for the weekend that was in it (200 for a twin room), the prices during regular weekends cannot be beaten for that location.
