The location of the hotel is nice, and some shops are in walking distance. The rooms and hallways are a bit dated, and the room we stayed in had a tiny shower. There's a touch screen device downstairs to see things to do in the area, which was pretty cool. They have limited parking, and the first night we had... More

I stayed here on business during November. The reception staff were very friendly and helpful. The room was very good and clean and comfortable. Unfortunately this was as good as it got. The food experience in the bar was poor to say the very least. It took 45 minutes to produce a tasteless and soggy so called Crispy Beer Battered... More
