Don't believe the offer from
My experience of the hotel and the staff as such was good, but was marred by the fact that offered me free breakfasts which were in fact not available for the price at the hotel

Some quirks but essentially good value
Room generally met my most important criteria of comfortable bed, cleanliness, hot shower and pleasant aspect and lighting. The staff did their best to help, though it appeared that there were times when the overall staff coverage was a bit lacking. In two aspects though, the room condition was disappointing. Firstly initially the room was left cold, and the one heater was taking too long to heat it. However the duty manager promised to attend to it as soon as possible, and in fact provided another heater. Nevertheless it took some time for the room to heat adequately, but after that heating was fine. There was also a problem with the toilet, which was similarly dealt with. Sadly it did not stay fixed, but fortunately flushing was still possible. The only other slight annoyance was that the check out time on the website did not match the actual time I was told by the staff, meaning that I booked a train home an hour earlier than necessary. That ought to be fixed. Overall a pleasant enough stay at a good price.

Good hotel
Great location for city centre. Parking info available if you phone hotel in advance. Friendly and helpful staff. Lovely cooked breakfast. Having booked for 3 adults, it would have helped if they had made the 3rd bed up without it having to be requested. Thank you.
