The "excellent" rating is for the high quality of the hotel, and not the location, which is not very attractive. However, it is very convenient for public transport, including the airport link.
Despite being next to the railway, the rooms are well insulated & very quiet.
I do not usually like "chain" hotels, but I was won over by the high quality of the rooms and the excellent & friendly welcome from all staff.
The restaurant menu is not extensive, but the quality & service were very good indeed. There is an extensive wine list, with several available by the glass.
The buffet breakfast was extremely good with a wide choice.
Note to the management: your receptionists and restaurant staff were outstandingly good.
