We had room 512 in the modern wing for 3 nights.
The bedroom was quite small and cramped but quiet, modern and comfortable (although we found the bed too hard).
The bathroom was fine with lots of hot water (in bath shower).
The room looked out from the back of the hotel across to the river and shopping centre across the river.
There was free wifi available (which was not reliable).
The breakfast buffet was disappointing with a small selection of food of average quality. The only egg option was scrambled eggs which was always down to its last spoonful whenever we were there.
We did try the restaurant for dinner though and both the food and service were good.
The ground floor bar area is very pleasant too, although sometimes we found it difficult to get served as it was not always staffed and we had to go to reception to request service.
The immediate vicinity of the hotel is a little boring, with a few cafes, the bus station and a McDonalds quite close. It was a 15 minute walk to the old town to reach the nicer cafes and restaurants.
The free parking under the hotel was appreciated.
