  • Location ideal for us, near town and easy walking distance to Theatre. Best value for money, well worth the usual rates and i mostly loved friendly and helpful the staff were. Room was very comfortable and breakfast was enjoyable.

    Expensive for nothing and small beds. Also the residents bar closed very early and drink prices were a little bit higher than expected especially for a glass of wine.

  • We liked the location, staff are friendly and the underground parking is excellent, the decor is a little old. Just arrived home from a great weekend in paris, rooms are spacious and facilities are convenient.

    Hotel is always very warm, inclusive rate would have been better and breakfast is very early.
