No complaints about this hotel. Lovely large room in a clean and modern hotel. Friendly and helpful staff, well equipped gym and good size pool. Would have been excellent except breakfast was very average when everything else was so good. Great value.

Chose this hotel for a three night stay as we wanted to visit the cathedral and it appeared to be a short and pleasant walk there, which happened to be the case. The room was comfortable and had most of the features we wanted, including free wifi. Typical of many hotels, the dooner only just covered the top of the...
