Staff, breakfasting, bar, ambience - generally all good.
Materials used for re-fit are of good quality.
Note about bathroom fit-outs: no shower positioning rail, rainfall shower cannot be used due to copious spillage (very narrow shower screen - afflicts all rooms, staff are aware of this). No privacy - transparent from outside through to WC in one panel (not best if you're sharing a twin room aren't a couple). Owners spent money on wallpaper - workmen have pasted it on then cut the edges with scissors.
No self-parking, jostle with the taxi rank and jam up the place. City centre hotel issues, not a big deal. Staff efficiently valet park it for you thereafter though.
Not 5 star, a good 4.
