The Hotel is easy to find, has plenty of convenient parking and perfect for getting out and about without having to negotiate the tight cobbled streets of the City Centre. If you are on an exploring holiday this would be perfect as a base. It is a 10 minute taxi ride to the city centre, as others have said, but Taxi's are relatively inexpensive and the Hotel has a great arrangement with a local firm, they book it for you, give you a card and the taxi is charged to your room job done. What you spend on Taxi's is set off by savings on the cost of staying in the City Centre, and car parking. The staff from reception to bar and dining room were friendly and helpful and nothing was too much trouble.
The bedrooms are spacious, comfortable & clean. Some rooms, including ours (we had room 102) are above the meeting and function rooms and I would imagine if you are a light sleeper and a party was going you may hear it, fortunately all quiet during our stay.
Breakfast is good and plentiful, if I had one minor criticism is that the scrambled eggs stay in a warmer and were overdone on a couple of mornings but that was the only issue food wise.
We'd happily stay again!! less
