          • S great central location, near the train station and the hotel was quite spacious and attractive looking. Staff were efficient and helpful, the service from reception, dining room and housekeeping was excellent. The breakfast was tasty.

            The pool area was a throwback to my old school pool and was generally dated, our toilet flush was very poor.

          • Closeness to city centre pleasant, near station and car park very reasonable. The hotel itself was perfect, the staff on reception were incredibly helpful and the bathroom was clean and well presented. Breakfast was much better and spa facilities were adequate.

            The view out of the window was of a very large air con unit and the quality of this room was very poor in comparison the money that we paid. Old style tv it was the car parking that really bugged me, the bed was not even a small double the mattrass was like sleeping on a hammock and bar lunch was chaotic. Curtains were dirty.

          • Location restaurant staff were brilliant and leisure facilities were excellent will stay again. The breakfast was buffet style and offered a good selection, the room was hot and the only way to reduce the heat was to open the window No heat control, the pillows were hard well used. The food at dinner was disappointing, the Hungarian concierge came to collect us was very friendly and professional, the receptionist was very polite.

            The view is not very nice and we over looked the station and didnt hear any annoucements. Worse 4* hotel in the world i have ever stayed in and overlooked busy main road and Post Office. The bed is far too soft and uncomfortable, beer is expensive in the bar.

            Poor quality of the bed, too hot in bedroom and dirty toilets. More fresh fruit choice at breakfast also needed, overpriced dinner.

          • The room was a twin overlooking the garden and the view of the minister at night was fantastic, the location of the hotel was superb, the reception staff were friendly, helpful and efficient. The bed was very soft isnt good for everyone.

            Breakfast was pretty basic, no fresh fruit available.

          • Great location, lovely, convenient hotel and the staff were lovely,helpful and friendly. The bed was tiny, you can get much better in a premier inn and the breakfast was good.

            Very very small rooms for the fairly high price charged.
