    Not the greatest.
    The room itself was fine, clean and tidy. The room was far too hot, you could only open the window a crack as it was on the 4th floor. A huge fan was provided but all it seemed to do was move the hot air as there wasn’t enough fresh air coming in. Both nights we had to sleep with the window open and both nights there were drunken idiots outside chanting, as this was in between the buildings I am guessing they were guests, this went on til 2am without any of the staff moving them on.

    Check in to the room was smooth, however the room had a funny smell upon entry and it was BOILING. Yes, it’s December and cold out but it was incredibly uncomfortable. We called reception who said someone would come and open the window (which was locked shut for security reasons). Turns out maintenance were having a break and the manager came to assist an hour later, opening the window by about 10cms. Tried to order room service after a long day traveling but no one would answer the phone. I went to the restaurant to order and the gentlemen was really helpful when ordering food to suit our dietary requirements (allergy to gluten). Parking was full on arrival so I used JustPark instead. The room was fine, clean and tidy and a big TV but even with a fan in the room it was very stressful trying to get ready to go out in such a sweaty atmosphere. Not what I expected for the price.

    Check in amd first day amd might great very happy.Good value for a quiet spacious single room perfect location for events I was goimg to. My rating dropped due to the secomd day wjen I returned at 5pm to find room uncleaned despite leavimg one of the 3 door tags on(why you need 3 is anyone's guess) indicating room needed cleaning.When I rang reception to request fresh supplies they did apologise and offered a clean which I clearly declined;housekeeping came promptly.However 5 minutes later when I was about to nap a second housekeepe
