Fabulous 8.6 From 682 reviews

Good 6.0
We had a lovely stay, the staff were so friendly and very helpful. The hotel itself is in a fantastic location but I think the rooms could do with a freshen up, the paint work, carpets and bathroom looked tired. In the morning as we left for breakfast the outdoor entrances were covered in cigarette ends and empty beer bottles and on our arrival back a few hours later they were still there...not a pleasant site! The leisure facilities were ok a little tired too.

Poor 2.0
They were busy with a city event. Breakfast was like a war-zone. We didn't get any breakfast at all.

Gary, gb1 night business trip
Very good 8.0
It was lovely however not as nice on the outside as the pictures say. Staff were all very friendly and helpful, however when we asked for dressing gowns to use in the spa we were told they didn't have any!! Lovely relaxing atmosphere and excellent location, would stay here again.
Kayleigh, gb1 night trip with friends
Very good 8.0
Always of the same standard.
Rooms are a good size and so are the bed. Stayed here on a few occasions, can always rely on the same standard. My only complaint would be that it does always that a bit too long to check in. Though it was faster than normal this time.
