I started coming here when it opened and it was clean and modern but it needs some work doing now. Desks are worn in rooms with fuzzy tv and although modern a cold and drab bar with a cold reception area. Needs some thought as overtaken by others now

Average hotel in a convenient city centre location. Everything at this hotel was as you would expect for the price you pay, there was nothing to surprise you, nothing to make you think you got extra value for money. Overall it was a good hotel for business travelers.
