Excellent, friendly and convenient hotel
Very friendly and helpful staff, great location near shops, restaurants and transport and comfortable, well maintained rooms - no complaints at all
Nigel, us2 night trip
Very Good 8.0
Great for the Cost, Breakfast is Across the Street
This is a great hotel for the cost. If you could eat breakfast in the hotel, rather than across the street, it would get a higher rating.
