There was nothing outstanding about this hotel in terms of its situation, facilities and restaurant - all of which were basic but adequate - but what made it stand out were the genuinely friendly and helpful staff members who went out of their way to ensure we had a good stay.
Well-placed for cruise passengers (which we were), the hotel is sited next door to several similar hotels just a short taxi ride from both the train station and docks, pretty close but further than most would care to walk with luggage in tow.
The hotel has a restaurant serving basic fare of the pre-prepared microwavable type - OK for refuelling but nothing more. There is a TGI Friday's within 100 yards of the hotel, and the West Quay Shopping Centre with John Lewis, Marks & Spencer etc is less than five minutes away on foot.
