    Very friendly and helpful staff, clean and nicely appointed rooms. Generous continental breakfast. Excellent central location for a quick overnight or tourist stop. Only quibble is the soft/collapsed mattress on the bed.

    Heritage building, value, clean, lashings of hot water, friendly staff. Very well located. It does not have all the frills and room a little small but who cares on a City break. What not to like? Visited about 6 times and there are steady improvements

    I'm not sure what you expected. We're hardly inexperienced travellers, and for a very well placed, city centre location, clean, friendly, with discounted parking, we paid very little. We're already planning a return visit.
