We stayed for 3 nights after booking through Airmiles.
Location; we got the bus from the airport which took 20 min & literally dropped us off 20 seconds walk from the front door. The bus station was so handy, clean & easy to use, so the Pomme d'Or is in a great spot if you don't hire a car. The main shopping area is less than 5 mins walk & bars, pubs & restaurants are even closer. The hotel overlooks Liberation Square, & to the right, as you look towards the harbour, is a newish, small shopping area called Liberty Wharf which has a Costa Coffee, & a rather delicious pasty shop/cafe; again, only about 30 seconds from the hotel lobby.
Room: our standard room was clean, comfortable & very pleasant. I would liken it in style & size to a good Holiday Inn. Our room was at the back of the hotel & overlooked a side street with a nightclub but we didn't hear a peep from outside. There was stacks of piping hot water which meant the bath filled very quickly compared to most hotel bathrooms & the shower was powerful. The tea & coffee tray is well stocked with drinks & biscuits(I recommend the hot chocolate!) There's quite a good choice of TV channels for a hotel room.
Food; we really enjoyed the breakfast buffet. The standard hot items are available but you can ask for poached eggs, kippers etc, Our poached eggs came quickly & cooked just right. There was a really good choice of fruits, yoghurts & pastries. Coffee was delicious. It was a typical breakfast buffet for this standard of hotel, but very well done & the added bonus of the restaurant being on the 1st floor means a delightful view of the harbour while eating.
Overall impression: we found all areas, including corridors, to be in good repair, & the lobby & reception area are particularly nice. The reception staff were extremely helpful. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this place & I'd be very happy to stay there again.
