Trouble parking and rubbish breakfast
It was difficult to find hotel as behind another one on ring road, stressful trying to find it in centre of town trying to negotiate trams. Found hotel eventually, parked car only to find £100 fine notices everywhere if not having a parking permit. Had no option but to park unload luggage and two kids by myself and ask where we could park. Still hoping I don’t receive a fine through the post. The staff were very nice in the hotel and prompt with enquires. The breakfast was lacking, spoke to other people who felt the same. Bacon cold despite being down at 9am and breakfast till 10. Only scrambled egg option, no poached or fried which was useless to me as I’m dairy intolerant.

Family stay
Great place to stay as we were going to a concert at the Arena, so it was ideally placed.Very comfortable beds too!
Madeliene, gbFamily trip
Fair 4.0
Poor stay
On arrival check in was very slow and not many staff were available. The shower in our room had a split hose which was eventually replaced however this was either poorly fitted or the wrong size so we still did not get a good shower. The room was poorly cleaned with some areas very thick with dust. The in room drinks facilities had one tea bag and two coffee sachets so not really enough for two people but after many long waits at reception (and unanswered phone calls) we did not report this. The woman clearing the tables in the breakfast area was very kind, hard working and cheerful and helped us with our questions about the food offerings.The only person who was interested in our issues was the manager on check out who offered us that if we came again she would ensure we had a good stay but this will not make this visit (which was part of my Christmas present) better.
