It is clean enough modern and breakfast is included. Breakfast is self serve and can be a bit of a fight but it is good...

Pretty standard Holiday Inn Express. Really friendly staff, very welcoming. Well located just a short walk from the main shopping areas and a shortish walk to the bus station and Queen Street. The only downside to the hotel was it wasn't the warmest hotel ever. It doesn't seem very well insulated, old windows etc. And so if you go out...
