  • 8.0.Very good

    Ideally situated. Lovely comfortable hotel and staff accommodating. Unfortunately cleaning staff were very noisy before 8am and knocked on our door twice to see if anyone was in the room this was a bit frustrating. We would have preferred a proper cup rather than a paper cup for our tea/ coffee. Breakfast was very good lots of choice. Would stay here again.

  • 4.0.Fair

    would not stay again

    Check in good, room was ready well before the 2pm check in time. Room itself was average but clean. Beds were extremely uncomfortable could feel the springs coming through on all 3 beds. Hotel had security staffs on all doors, every foyer, outside of each lift and in corridors due to the hotel currently supporting large groups of aslym seekers. corridors were littered with rubbish, toliet paper and dirty towels. Children were running and some even scootering around the corridors, altogether not what you would expect to see when youve paid alot of money to stay there.

    Had a lovely stay, breakfast was wonderful and plenty of choice. Room was comfy and big enough, noise from road and late evening wasn’t the best but still managed to get a good nights sleep. Would definitely return again

    Okish

    They have messed up our booking and rooms weren’t what we asked. Requested connecting rooms and they didn’t understand, even when at reception. We given up because it was not worth the effort. Breakfast room is outdated and food was not great but staff was friendly

    Not worth the money spent

    Staff were helpful and room generally well kept and clean. Bed was very uncomfortable. I was concerned to see so many security staff in and around the hotel when i arrived i mean lots in foyers, in the square outside reception and also on the landing of my floor down the corridor from my room, sat outside the lift. I've never stayed in a hotel with so much security but on my second day it became apparent and i was told that the hotel is currently supporting considerably large groups of asylum seekers.
