Seems Safe Mar 26, 2017
When I first drove into the car park, I noticed the large Police Station next door. I also noticed the 40ft (12 meter) high fence. This is to prevent parts of the IRA from firing Rocket Propelled Grenades from the hotel car park at the Police Station. A few years ago, they fired a mortar instead. Once you get over that realization, the hotel is excellent. I was greeted warmly, the reception staff made sure I knew how everything worked and what was available. My room was large and had everything. The room was never going to win and awards for décor but it was very nice.

I checked in early and set off to have a sneaky beer while I worked in the bar on the hotel’s Wi-Fi (chargeable). After work, I went straight to the gym for a run in the huge modern leisure complex. Then a quick dip in the pool and a long soak in the Jacuzzi. After that, back to my nice room and a change of clothes for dinner. The hotel is a just a few minutes’ walk from all the restaurants in the city.

The hotel has a historic manor house and grounds behind it and the hotel is set well away from the road. This makes it nice and quiet. They have several restaurants, a great bar and a wonderful leisure complex. An excellent hotel. I had a good night’s sleep and in the morning, I had a nice hot shower with a cup of coffee in my room. A great stay.

DAO’s Verdict:

- Quiet, non-smoking rooms, good sized with bathtubs

- Indoor heated pool and leisure complex

- Rooms have a good desk and loads of space to work, but WI-FI is chargeable

- Located right in the heart of the city

- 3 Food and drink options

The Police Station and fence - nex…
