Fabulous 8.6 From 820 reviews

Good 6.0
Consider other options
Setup of hotel not great. Long waits at breakfast, limited options at breakfast. Eggs ordered took longer than whole breakfast, we ordered when we sat down, followed up twice and 25 minutes later when we left they had still not arrived. Hotels laundry service lost one sock, which the hotel reimbursed us for. During the cleaning of the room they took one of my sons teddy bears and they were not able to find it. Even without the lost items I would not stay here again. The setup, location, service and breakfast at this hotel make it difficult to consider this an option if you are looking for a 5 star hotel.

Great stay .... highly recommended

Good 6.0
Usually great, not this time unfortunately.
Our room was unfortunately two double beds on the station street side, so very noisy. The hotel was fully booked so we couldn't change rooms. I was disappointed that the lift lobby was crowded with unused furniture and in the room there were some slim mattresses which must have been accidentally left there. We've stayed here around a dozen times and this was so disappointing.

Very good 8.0
Lovely hotel but slow service
Loved the hotel , however I was attending a dinner and checked in around 1530, I had a quick turnaround as meeting clients at 1645. Realised at 4 pm no hairdryer in room so called reception , called again at 4.15 and 4.30 as I was no running late .. small thing but it did have a massive outcome on my timings and had to go out with wet hair,

Fabulous hotel
Brilliant stay. The tele didn’t work in the room so we were changed to another room straight away. We had already been upgraded to a large room with two double beds! Love this hotel.
