Recent reviews

Very good 8.4 From 454 reviews

Fair 4.0
Nice area, but room was disappointing. This was an upgaded room we where offered as the first room was very dated unclean with threadbare and stained carpet by the bathroom. Hole in net curtains, mold in shower, carpet not vacumed properly. This was a prestige room well below what i would say is acceptable standard. One of the cleaning staff actually stopped us walking down the corridor towards the lift by crouching down beside her trolley which i consider as very discourteous. Also the main neon sign on tge property was not working and a section of the M was missing. Bad first impression. Veranda area was nice but ashtrays and plates of food left on tables overnight, also above the windows the paint work is terrible cracked and peeling off.

Good 6.0
The towels could be improved as they were thin and small, and when I received a gin and tonic via room service there was no ice or lemon. I am also waiting for my on line receipt.

Great hotel, have stayed here several times and will definitely stay again

Very good 8.0
Good No Hassle Experience.
We live locally and were simply staying overnight as part of a regular date night out we have been taking over the past couple of years. We simply want a comfortable place to stay for the night, so it's not a holiday and we dont tend to use any of the hotels "extra" facilities, so the southgat meets this aim completely.

Very good 8.0
We love the hotel and stay 2-3 times a year but it is starting to look tired with worn carpet etc. The staff are always amazing. Could do with some bigger towels and better pillows. The chair in our room was also worn out.
