This hotel is very well located. Nice welcome on arrival. Comfortable room & good shower. Great breakfast! Street noise made it very difficult to sleep and we were most disappointed about this. 1.30am and afterwards it was still noisy.

Definitely recommended
Lovely hotel in a great location. Comfortable and spacious rooms that are nice and quiet even to the front yet so close to some great restaurants and bars. Only minor gripe is the breakfast buffet ran out if a few items almost an hour before end of service. Staff were all very friendly and helpful.
