Dear Martinw034 I am pleased to hear that you enjoyed your stay at our hotel. We still have more refurbishments which we need to attend to but I dare say in the last five years the hotel has seen a lot of changes with refurbishments. I think you hit the nail on the head with the parking, we know in comparison to other city centre hotels we offer great value and flexibility with our parking but I imagine to some it may appear a little steep, the addition of our friendly and approachable staff such as Elliott who was on hand on the day of your arrival also adds to the value of our valet parking service. Thank you for your kind words and recommendations and we hope to see you again in the future. Kind regards Steve Bailey Interim General Manager.

Dear Copycop Thank you for taking the time to leave a review after your recent stay. It is nice to hear that the large clean rooms were to your liking and of course our location and friendly staff helped make the stay even more enjoyable, I cant match your booking name to your Tripadvisor name to know which room you stayed in but we do have a rear facing room which has a new sofa on order so I imagine this was the room in which you stayed in and as you said with these rear facing rooms there is no street noise. We do hope to welcome you back again in the future. Kind regards Steve Bailey Interim General Manager
