Hotel location was excellent. Easy walking distance to cafes and restaurants. We were very happy with our room. The shower was the highlight, great pressure. Vehicle parking was in a near by building which was within walking distance also. Only bug bear we had was the homeless people in the vicinity of the hotel made my partner feel unsafe.

Just felt unsafe when coming and going after 5pm with the homeless people literally set up outside the front door especially as travelling alone. Staff should ask Police to move them to another location.
