This hotel has an excellent location. Just a few steps off the High Street, so very close to everything. Welcome was swift and easy, but a few details missed out - no check did I want a paper delivered for example. Breakfast quite nice: cold buffet, hot food to be ordered from staff, served in a very pleasant room with nice views of the street. Our first sight of the room was a bit worrying as a large extractor fan/air conditioning unit was parked right outside our window, but we decided to see if the noise did dirsturb our sleep, and fortunately it did not as it was quite a steady white-noise type of sound. However we did have issues with the bed itself. There is no way this was even a full size English double bed, so if you are used to larger (American) bed sizes you might be in for a shock. Also we suffered from the dreaded waterproof layer under the bottom sheet which might protect the mattress but also means one spends the night as if in a sauna. But then again we could have stripped this off I suppose. The bathroom was absolutely fine and spotlessly clean (as was everywhere else in the hotel as far as I could see).
