It's a bit far from station. Even the tram cannot reach there. The water tap is surprisingly old-fashioned. I hope the hotel can replace them. Staff are nice and helpful. Service is really good. Even when we did not require cleaning service, the staff gave us a bag of new towels and pillow cases etc which was real considerate.

The Fantastic Staff are the only good point. ”

The staff were fantastic, but generally the hotel is grubby and in need of deep cleaning and redecoration. The breakfast was extremely disappointing with cold food and a cold room that was overcrowded - most guests were wearing their coats for good reason. The overworked staff were doing their best to cope, but the whole experience persuaded me to eat elsewhere.
