            Common areas are a bit small and can get quite busy, perhaps the price is a little expensive for breakfast.

            A little too narrow in certain areas of the room and extremely noisy hotel. Not worth the money, furniture seems a bit dated and the breakfast could have been better.

Hotel staff were very helpful, in the reception everyone were very nice and the room was very quiet for sleeping and the bed was huge. Breakfast was good and the one dinner we ate there was awesome.

            For a place to crash after a day in town is ideal, the shower also is very annoying.

          • The location is perfect and the style of the hotel is very modern and we just loved. The shower head is huge and takes some getting used to.

            The desk staff were useless, the rooms were vey small.

          • Nice room and location, fantastic value for money. Very friendly helpful staff and comfortable beds. The computer desk and the spacious bathroom, good restaurant, excellent choice.

            Surely the hotel photos couldn't be accurate.
