Mairi Ainsworth

28 February 2007 Mairi would recommend this property

Liked: The staff at reception were extremely helpful, they helped us to get a bus across town to the Corn Exchange instead of spending £20 on a taxi! Very clean and modern, a perfect place to stay for a couple of nights. Will def recomend to all my friends, and I will def be back! Althugh I would reccomend the continental breakfast over the cooked one. It was quite expensive for what we actually got on our plates.
