Great location but very dated and unloved!
Only there for one night. Staff friendly and helpful, hotel is generally very dated and furniture in the rooms had certainly seen better days. Parking was next to the hotel but had to pay extra, although only £5. Position is excellent, just opposite the Cathedral and great for the old town.

Good location, shame about the room
Good location near the cathedral. Unfortunately the room smelled strongly of cigarette smoke, despite it being a non-smoking hotel. I had a room with a balcony, but the door to the balcony wouldn't close securely so traffic noise was quite loud. The bath and basin drained very slowly. The receptionists were friendly and helpful, but I didn't really have time to change rooms. The breakfast was very good.

Not so good! A rather tired, previously a good quality hotel, but certainly no longer a four star rating in our view. Our so called de-lux room had chipped furniture and a broken bedside draw. The carpet was stained and rucked. The bathroom extractor fan not working. Sink very slow to drain and budget toilet. Intermittent faulty lift. Beds not always made properly. However, public areas appeared to be more inviting. It was lovely and warm and our beds were comfortable.

Location is the best thing about the hotel
Overall the hotel is okay, convenient location for the city centre. However is it in need to a freshen up. The shower wasn’t great and the whole bathroom needs some tlc! Breakfast was good and the staff there were very friendly. Unfortunately the reception team upon check in were not as friendly.

Smells like a nursing home
The staff are friendly but the hotel is quite run down. It’s also had a strong smell similar to a nursing/ residential home which was very odd putting. Rooms need updating paint peeling off etc.. however appeared clean Breakfast was nice

Stay spoilt due to lift breaking down
Overall our stay was good. However, we had a room on the third floor and the lift was only operational on our arrival and our departure. The times in between it wasn’t working so we had to use the stairs. Part of our hotel selection criteria is a lift as my wife has difficulties using stairs as she has previously damaged her knee ligaments.
