This hotel would suit anyone like me who likes a bit of luxury but without formality. The rooms are modern, clean and spacious. You look after yourself, so no staff hovering to clean your room, open the door, carry your bags. That might sound like a disadvantage to some, but I'm done with cloying hotels where there is always someone waiting to pounce and do something you didn't want doing, and get tipped for the privilege. The reception area is welcoming at all hours, with big squashy sofas where you can curl up with a book or use the free wifi, and there is great quality coffees and snacks 24 hours. The fridge in your room is empty so you can stock up on what you want from a useful shop next door. The hotel is far enough away from the 'party' area of town to avoid the worst of the noise, although there was some low level noise in the early hours from what looked like a hostel across the road from people returning from the bars, but it wasn't unreasonable. If I could ask for two improvements, they would be for the indoor pool area to be open later than 8pm, and for check in to be available earlier than 3pm. Many if not most flights arrive early in the morning, and leave also in the morning, so rooms must be becoming available all through the day as they get cleaned. There's nothing worse than arriving on holiday then having to wait 4 or 5 hours to get into your room - it feels like a wasted day of your holiday. All in all though I was very happy with my choice.
