Fair 4.0
Disappointing
Hotel location is central and very good. Arrived late before midnight with family . we had a push chair and heavy luggage. The hotel entrance is at least 10 steps above the street level. there is no disabled and children access and no outside lift !! we had to carry child buggy and heavy luggage up to reception area. When asking the receptionist about a different access, he stated that the front door is the only access and the building is listed so they can not alter the appearance . Not sure if it is legal not to have easy access for disabled and children. Reception staff hav been very helpful all the time The Room is tiny, once you convert the sofa to a bed , there is virtually no space for you to move. Breakfast is very limited and dining area is very small, crowded. They have one high chair which was taken by another family. when asking about another one, staff said non available !! The price for three nights is ridiculously high for such quality. You would pay an extra £50 per night and book a five star hotel nearby ! Very disappointing stay. the only good thing is reception staff.

Nice and convenient
Friendly and efficient staff. Breakfast was busy but managed well. Rooms are clean.heavy construction work outside hotel. Perhaps customers need to be informed of this during the booking process.

Delicious breakfast
Had a fantastic breakfast, it was hot!! Unlike many hotels I have stayed in recently. A simple fact, keep the serving plates warm, and the food will stay hot. The quality of the food was very good, in fact it puts some of the hotels I have stayed in to shame!!
