Excellent hotel, lovely rooms and bathroom with massive shower. Staff were very friendly and helpful. Very prettily decorated for Christmas. Very comfy bed, and both a firm and a soft pillow. Highly recommended.

Overall very enjoyable stay and staff could not do enough to help. The restaurant was very busy on the Friday evening and staff were busy however, we were complimented for this. Would I stay at the hotel again, yes.

A great hotel. Good location close to the city centre. Nice rooms, good gym and pool. The best part however was the staff. They were excellent. The reception staff in particular went the extra mile to ensure our stay was everything we could hope for. Thanks
