Pros:The location is great for access to the Waterfront. The room was very clean and the staff are always friendly and helpful and nothing is too much trouble. The breakfast is lovely, lots of choice and nice waiting staff. This is definitely good value for money and a very pleasant experience.
Cons:The key for the room was temperamental, and the road outside was noisy during the night.
