Saw pictures of this hotel online, and knew I wanted to stay here. We were only visiting the city for a short weekend, and needed a base for the night.
The room was small but comfortable (if a little on the warm side). Reception staff were friendly and efficient. Despite the rest of the city being busy with rugby fans, it was fairly quiet here, and we were the only ones using the well stocked hotel bar.
We opted not to have breakfast in the hotel; although it looked pretty good set out in the bar area as we headed out in the morning.
The biggest benefit of the hotel is its location. Centrally situated, we were able to easily get the airport shuttle to and from the airport, with only a short work to the bus.
Staff were courteous and helpful. (Special thanks for saving us a lot of time at the airport with the tip on security!)
Great base for a weekend or a longer trip.
