This hotel is very modern, comfortable and clean. The bar and restaurant are really good, and the club area was great, we were very well looked after there. I'd happily recommend this hotel to anybody - I assure you, you'll be very well looked after.

This place has done a lot to clean itself up over the past few years. It used to be very noisy, due to the nearby nightlife, but, now they have triple glazed(?) and insulated the windows etc it is very quiet.
