Exceeded all of our expectations!

"The Sportsview exceeded all of our modest expectations.The location was superb. Just 10 minutes walk from the centre of the city, but this is just far enough out so the traffic is relatively quiet. We even managed to get a space in their free car park.The breakfast selection was decent, with lightning-fast service with a smile.Rooms were very clean.Wi-fi was super fast, and available everywhere in the building.In fact I can't think of a single bad thing to say!"
