Is there a bus into the City centre and a bus stop near to the hotel. How often do they run.
Yes plenty of buses around the corner from hotel 5 mins. and drop you back at the jolly miller pub opposite hotel on your way back. Run about every 8-10 mins.
There are three different buses that go to the city centre. They run about every half hour, so the longest you probably have to wait for the next one would be 10-15mins.
The bus stop to the city centre is just around the corner of the hotel, less than 2mins walk.
Return buses too run on a similar frequency, and they drop off on the bus stop, outside a big public house opposite the hotel across the road.
The reception will give you good information of what to ask the driver to stop on your return journey. I'm sorry but I cannot recall the name of the public house.
We used the bus all the time, much easier than taking the car. The bus stop is just round the corner (the hotel receptionist will direct you and give you the bus numbers), not sure how often they run but we never had to stand there for longer than 5 minutes.
We didn't use the bus so I don't know, but it's a main road and the city centre is not far. Ask the hotel. The receptionist would probably know the most direct bus number or at least the name of the bus stop and you can then check on the 'net.
