close to city centre, able to walk to shops and eateries. Staff helpful and efficient.
The swimming pool is quite dark and less lights. A bit dangerous in the wet area.
Great location for shopping as it's just around the corner from the Civic Centre. Also close to the theatre. No onsite car park is disappointing so we initially had to park overnight in the shopping centre and found on street parking for the weekend. Our room was nice but had not been cleaned properly ...
Value for money, nothing that stands out as bad. Normal hotel. Hotel staff where very polite and happy
