    Nice hotel but not happy with early check in cost

    Nice modern and trendy hotel. Comfy bed and big room. Wasn't impressed with being told I needed to pay to check in at 1.30 instead of 3 (room was clearly available) pretty bad customer service in my opinion

    Brilliant weekend

    Enjoyed our weekend. Think it needs new hall carpet throughout though.

  • 8.0.Very good

    We had a nice stay at the Alan. We'd appreciated a chair at the desk as needed to work instead of sitting on the sofa chair. Having the windows open was noisy during some of the nights. The room cleaning staff were very attentive. The restaurant was unfortunately overpriced. Otherwise we would have eaten there more than once.

    Very modern hotel. Rooms large & comfortable. Check-in slow via portable Ipad......didn't like DJ in reception area. Bar service extremely slow. Breakfast good.

    Staff were very friendly and helpful. Good sized room but the carpet was badly stained and there was no chair at the desk so it was difficult to work at a laptop.

    Excellent stay.

    Great hotel, with none of the issues mentioned in previous reviews. Reception was excellent, friendly and took minutes. Myself and a friend had a twin room with two double beds. Good size, very comfortable beds and great value. Bar and food options also exceptional. The location is superb for exploring the city with most things walkable. I would highly recommend The Alan and I’ll certainly be staying again.
