Fabulous 8.6 From 23 reviews

Exceptional 10.0
2 night stay
Comfortable and good value for money. Would stay again.
Keith, gb2 night business trip
Very good 8.0
I recommend this place
The guy who assisted on arrival was really nice and helpful. It is a very quiet area. It's a place you can really go back after enjoying the city and rest. Very clean and tidy. But also very simple. It was strange for me that I had to make my own bed, but as I said everything was very clean. And in very good conditions. There are many good restaurants in the area for breakfast lunch and dinner. Close to the station and walking distance to the city centre.
