A lovely hotel in a great area. Staff very friendly. Rooms were huge! Very comfortable seating area. Air con was a bit loud but that soon settled down. Lovely view from window. Free breakfast was good- don't expect anything too fancy but it did the job. Would stay here without hesitation.

This hotel is ideally situated to walk or bus to all the historic and cultural sites in the city. It is surrounded by good restaurants and pubs. The staff is friendly and Gwen at the front desk will put a smile on your face.

Stayed for three nights 9/28-10/1. Check-in was smooth, had booked through my convention site.
