I found my room and surrounding areas to be most pleasurable, very well kept and maitained. What I was put off by was the prices of food and drinks at the bar, even for a hotel standards I found them to be very high indeeed.

The bed was very large (it looked like two twins had pushed together) and there were two separate duvets instead of one duvet. The rooms...

Big beds and two duvets was fab! Modern style. Nice lounge bar area. Bit too much club music for us. Good location to go into town but quite a bit of road noise. We would have just gone to a chain like premier inn but this was a lot better and more interesting!

Stayed one night for business, as my meeting finished early, I was at the hotel just after 3 pm. Checkin was straight forward, no queues! The room was simply furnished but adequate for I needed, wi-fi is problematic. The hotel do tell you this, the best solution is to go to the lobby, log into the penta wifi portal there....
