Good6.0
Very uncomfortable bed and pillows
The room and hotel was okay but the bed and pillows were appalling! Note that there's no air-conditioning in the rooms. Luckily we only stayed one night.

Good place. Only negative is that cleaning staff entered our room at 9am and again 30 minutes later when we weren’t due to check out until 12 noon.

Cracks all papered over!
Comfortable place, but poor WiFi, slow service and poor finish for what they regard as a 'top hotel'!

Exceptional10.0
Everything was perfect about this stay. Hotel service was so friendly and helpfully. Hotel room was clean and beds were so comfy. We would definitely stay again. The gasworks restaurant attached to the hotel is well worth going too. Food was gorgeous.
