8/10 Very good

Great Location.
I have stayed here a few times over the years but have not been back for a few years. The hotel is very well located at the bottom of city bowl and close to the waterfront. The rooms are well kitted out and clean. The hotel needs a little attention on upkeep generally but it is very good value. The breakfast was not a good as I remember.

Beds not Comfortable
Good stay. Great staff. Good location. Found the beds and pillows were not up to standard and the mattresses fitted left the corners of the beds exposed, meaning that we were bumping shins and knees when walking past the bed.
