Nice smell of paint, felt newly refurbished, although also meant a few bits still needed doing! Few loose wires in my room. Maybe could of done with little things, like a chair in room, and hooks to hang coat

Really good location close to main train station, and all the sights. Many other hotels and restaurants close by. Staff were really good and helpful. Other reviews say about lack of kitchen, but useful microwave and kettle, so sorted for cup of tea etc and staff would give out free cups and cutlery
