Good quality hotel in a decent location
The staff were friendly and professional and overall my friends and I were very happy with this hotel. The hotel has a very good quality feel about, which was slightly let down by one or two minor condition problems, but nothing to affect our stay. The location is within easy waling distance from the city centre and only a short taxi ride to a couple of venues. We thought the parking charges were a little steep, but to be expected from a hotel as these are always extortionate. All in all we were happy with the room and we all agreed that we would be happy to stay there again. May be next time we try out the spa...

The Steak restaurant was freezing cold and there were heaters dotted about so seems this was a long standing problem. It was a Saturday night and when a lemonade was requested the response was ‘ we only have coke’ . Other diners were also being told we don’t have this sorry we have ran out. For such a big hotel on a weekend night this seems unacceptable really ! Other than this the hotel was very pleasant .

Good overall.
Hotel was fine, very clean and room was massive. Short walk from the City Centre with lots of buses passing frequently. Hotel car park is £25 overnight. Check in was a little chaotic at 4pm on a Saturday. Don’t really understand why hotels dont let you just check in and drop your bags when your room is free instead of making you wait until 4pm. Surely only has a negative impact on people’s stay.
