    Walked in on a couple in their roim

    I booked 3 rooms together for myself and friends for my hen weekend. We were all put on separate floors, one of the rooms we entered was already taken by a couple( the lady got such a fright when we walked in on them ) They gave us a new room, the key card didn’t work the following night so we went to get it re activated, the receptionist tried to give us the other couples room again ( if there was a fire they would not of been looking for us )

    Very disappointed for the price

    For the price of the room after physically being there was not impressed with, room was dark and dingy, noise from air on roof units outside window, no cleaner on our stay bins and laundry were not changed. Toilet unit was not level on floor so once sat on it moved. Bath had no plug and shower was no point having one as water was no where near powerful enough and shower head points at the wrong angle. Reception staff were great on arrival and bar staff of an evening were quick and sufficient. Overall our stay would be a 6/10

    Exceptional service

    The service here is exceptional and the rooms are very clean. I was in a back facing room so it was lovely and quiet too. The rooms are very warm which is fine in Winter but we were there in September on some of the warmest days and the windows barely open. Although you are provided with a fan, mine didn’t work. In terms of eco friendliness, I was surprised that there wasn’t a separate bin for recyclables, especially as I was provided with bottles of water.

    Pros and cons!

    Very central location! Breakfast was excellent! Dining Room and lounge very modern and clean! Staff friendly and helpful. View from back of hotel was building site. Bathroom needs a deep clean and refurbishment. Don't think floor had been washed for a while! Dirty marks behind and on door surfaces needed corners washed!

    I expected a better room. It overlooked what looked like a yard with machines going all night.disappointing view. The shower was also small and looked old. The good thing is the hotel location right in the middle of the shop’s restaurants and attractions and the super friendly staff

    One night stay - there won't be another

    Check-in hadn't received booking from Hotels.com so had an hour wait. for a central city hotel to have only canned Guinness is really not right, the check-in counter is worn and filthy, on the staff side. If they are happy working in those conditions I really question the cleanliness of the hotel. Have a look...its dirty. The room is very tired and worn and not worth the money. Overall very disappointing
