    Good

    Found it very noisy at night. We booked for 2 nights B&B with 1 evening meal included. However when we went for our meal we found it was a special limited menu and not the normal restaurant menu.

    Fabulous

    Convenient to city centre, relaxed bar atmosphere with friendly staff, breakfast was lovely with a nice variety and the friendly staff.

    The hotel was at times to hot. Pokey bathroom with no tea facilities and very little choice on the television, couldn't find the switch for light over dresser.

    Fabulous

    Staff were very friendly and professional

    I booked a Deluxe Twin Room and to be honest it was the size of a single room (Room 123). I travel a bit for work so I have the opportunity to stay in different hotels and there is no way that this room could have been a deluxe twin room. I did not ask to change the room because the hotel was fully booked so it would have been pointless. Deluxe Twin Room definitely not value for money.

    Very good

    Nice location if you're looking for a party night out, cute interior design and nice atmosphere, great pub in the hotel, clean rooms.

    The staff was not as friendly as we had expected (they were Irish) and it was noisy from the pub downstairs, but earplugs can be a great help.

    Exclusive

    The room was excellent and the breakfast was very good, it was freshly cooked not like some places who have everything cooked in advance. the dining room staff were very nice and friendly, and we enjoyed the relaxing time at breakfast. nice bar also.

    The only thing we did not like was there was no view from our room and the noise from the fan meant we couldnt open the window.

    Very good

    Location, also I was pleased with the breakfast

    I had made my booking using the bookings.com website and booked a special offer deluxe room, however when I got there my room was not deluxe. I was given money off the 2 rooms as a result because they said that the booking hadnt come through as a deluxe room. I felt that this was fair however I was disappointed at the inefficiency as I was not pleased with my room,it was extrememly small.

    Very good

    Excellent location, extremely comfortable beds, lovely old world reception and public areas, staff very friendly

    No tea/coffee making facilities in room, bedroom very small and stuffy, no shower cap with the bathroom toiletries. Bedroom definitely not 4 star standard!
