Stayed here on multiple occasions for single nights for business. Rooms all ok (they don't seem to be recently renovated as in some HIX, but are reasonable for the price). Breakfast standard buffet, nothing special, but also no complaints. No bed adjacent electricity in rooms

Hi, A taxi into the city centre is about £8 at most. There is a regular bus service that runs past the hotel. Thanks, Darren.

Hi, What is the temperature of water in the pool? Many thanks, Jacek Aleksander
There is no pool in the hotel. There is a pool next door in the Virgin Active club, but it is a separate feature that costs extra to use.
