I spent 3 nights here on business. It is a 3 star place, and that is as far as it is likely to go without a serious overhaul. It is clean and the staff are efficient, they dealt with all of my requests for printing etc. I did not try the breakfast, but I was luckier than the last reviewer...

We booked this hotel as we thought it would be a good middle-of-the-road option in a decent location. The price for what you get is way too high. The rooms are clean but the hotel is so dated. The towels are so old, they had holes and were discoloured. The free breakfast was awful - I don't think I have...
