Clean hotel. I should have booked a twin room I ...
Had a great stay here, room was very clean and comfortable. TV in room was old fashioned and needs upgraded to flat-screen as there was a buzzing sound on all channels bar two but it did not deter from my enjoyment too much, great breakfast, nice choices available and the location was key, within walking distance to the places I wanted to see so saved on taxi-fares!
