Great Location...hotel was ok...

This hotel was in an excellent location on Princes St. which is the main shopping street in the new town. However, the hotel was actually a Mercure hotel and not a Ramada. We had some trouble finding it initially as there was no Ramada sign outside! It was a bit dated and could do with some updating but it was clean and comfortable. Our room was very small but we couldnt be bothered to pay for an upgrade! And we were kept awake 2 nights by noisy guests on our floor...but that wasnt the hotels fault! Just unlucky I guess! Overall, great location if you are not planning on spending much time in the hotel.

The best thing about my stay was...

Location was excellent.

had a fantastic stay at this hotel

Really enjoyed our stay at the mercure hotel (formally the ramada), the staff were really nice and helpful in every way. the single only disadvantage of our stay was that the hotel room was a little on the small size, could have done with a bigger room,but everything else made up for it. The location is very central to everywhere and the bus stop just a few minutes down the street. The breakfast was excellant every morning, and the lunch was also fabulous, I would highly recomend this hotel to anyone.

The best thing about my stay was...

Food and location.
