    Lots of positives and we will definitely use again. Very central to Princess Street, St James' Centre and as claimed only five minutes from Playhouse Theatre. The hotel does not claim to be modern and decor is a little tired but very clean. Our room...More

    There is on street parking. It's free at night but you have to pay and display through the day. Its quite hard to get a space at times though
