    Very nice hotel with friendly staff. I went with a group of 24 15-16 year-olds on a school trip, and they accomodated us fine. Also, the hotel's situation is very good, as it is only 10-15 minutes away from the city centre. The only problem...More

    Prevailing winds meant that most cities that grew in
    industrial Britain had their most desirable
