    The breakfast was excellent. The staff were highly efficient and extremely amiable, the cleaning staff spoke and smiled and to be fair the staff are by far the strongest asset of the hotel. The hotel surroundings were very nice and there was plenty of parking.

    The rate we had paid for the room should have ensured a more space within the room. The room we stayed was extremely small, the bathroom was also very small, however the room and bathroom were perfectly adequate for our stay but I would not have liked to stay more than one night.

    It has a good location, close to both the city centre and to the station

    It was huge, with a 15 min walk from reception to the rooms

    i liked the room we stayed in and the style of the hotel

    the high prices in the bar. also some parts of the hotel were a little shabby like broken tiles in the bar (floor) damaged ceiling in our bathroom but nothing i would complain about..

    The room 101 was fantastic and the convenience for the train station.

    No we liked everything...if anything, the room was a little chilly at first but we soon found the thermostat.

    friendly polite hotel staff. Very good breakfast menu with black pudding.

    a bit pricey for what you get, and did not expect to be awake listening to disco at 0.45 a.m. in what is a four star hotel.
