Very good 8.0
Very good.. perfect location for the centre
Perfect location being right next to the Cathedral and the city centre... roon was quite large and comfortable... parking is available on site but is quite tight....breakfast was the standard self-service but very nice... hotel is a bit worn but pretty good overall and I would choose to stay there again

Fair 4.0
Air conditioning broken, massive stain on carpet, shower weak and low and stiff taps. Overall pretty poor. Amazing view however.

Good 6.0
Shabby hotel in a good location
Hotel very shabby and in urgent need of update. Car packing facilities were appalling. Staff not very professional (bar staff and breakfast staff). Front desk staff did try dispute everything. On a positive note location was good

Good 6.0
What a Shabby Place but Great location!!!
Fantastic location but poor shabby hotel. We were told out room had been upgraded!!! We would've hated to see what our original room was like .... Our room was dingy and tired - highly in need of a refurb.... They hadn't even changed the toiletries as we had the previous guests leftovers!!! We only had one cup and had to ask for another even though we booked a double room! The fridge had been screwed shut and no safe in our room either. Mediocre breakfast and threadbare carpet in the bar area which was the worst and most expensive shandy ever.

Exceptional 10.0
Great location, close to town and cathedral
Loved the location, right next to cathedral, breakfast good, car parking bit haphazard. Good location to town, walking distance only 2-3 minutes. Only thing that I couldn't fathom was that the double beds were pushed right up to a wall making it difficult to get out in the night if you were near the wall,
