As with all of the previous comments, the most disapointing was noise dampening. On a summers evening it is impossible to sleep without the windows open. And since my room was facing a pub on a friday evening, i was an earshot away from all the brawling laughter across the street. Rooms were clean but I would suggest to take the cleaning agents down a notch, it was suffocating. Badly in need of a renovation. Carpets in the hallway smelled funny. Too expensive for the state of the property. A travelodge would have been cheaper had better beds and had AC

One of the nicer hotels in this area and price bracket. Friendly and helpful staff. Nice building. Rooms (I was in a double) quite a good size and fairly well appointed. Hot breakfast options looked a little anemic, but pastries were freshly baked and coffee was good. Nice breakfast area, with space to watch the world go by outside while you're eating
