8/10 Very good

Room was clean and comfortable but very small. The paintwork and walls were quite grubby and could do with repainting. Bed was very comfortable, with nice crisp sheets and the towels were big and fluffy. Shower was good with nice toiletries. It was warm but we couldn't open the window as it was too noisy outside. This is to be expected as it's a prime location for the night life. I would stay again but make sure to take ear plugs.

Theatre trip
My husband and I stayed just for one night as we were going to the theatre in the evening and didn’t fancy a long drive home afterwards. Our stay was very pleasant. The staff were friendly and helpful. This was during the September heat wave which made our room rather airless but help was at hand with the fan we found in the cupboard. We would stay again.

Spot on.
I went for the deluxe room and was not disappointed. Worth it, but no good views from my window.
