4/10 Fair

Poor customer experience.
Awful experience. Hotel needs a refurb. The lighting was also unsually dark and lacks brightness. Telephone in room not working. The aircon in my room was not working. Used my mobile to contact front desk about no aircon as room was too warm. The lady on the front desk that was working on 28th, came to the room to check the air conditioning and promised she would get maintenance to look at issue and someone else the next day (29th) would let me know as she said aircon did have issue but maintenance team were only available next day. On 29th morning, Ajay on front desk had no idea about the issue and I had to explain entire situation to him which he said he would get maintenance to look at. I said to Ajay they should change my room if aircon does not work but he seemed confused. Upon my return in afternoon to hotel on the 29th, the same lady that came to the room on 28th was on front desk and said she didn't know what the update was as she was not working in the morning demonstrating a poor and unhelpful attitude. House keeping didn't replace toilet roll. Shambles all around.

Easy booking. Easy to check in. I'd arrived early in the morning and was able to leave my car in the free carpark. From the hotel there is easy access to the Bay by foot, and the City centre is a nice flat walk away, a mile ish. Train and bus are very close to the hotel. Good size room, bed & bathroom. Clean. Comfortable bed.

Lovely welcome from helpful reception staff. Car parking close by and very convenient . Really speedy , spacious lift to and from floors. All staff courteous and professional. Room fabulous and spacious. My stay was several days long and I would have benefitted from being able to hang more clothing especially some hooks for coats jackets etc. The wardrobe had just a few hangars and no hooks in the room at all . The bed was perfect. Extremely comfortable and given that the room faced the very busy city link road it was very quiet as was the sound in the hotel. Thanks for a great stay .

Good hotel some staff abrasive, not eco friendly
The hotel is good, the morning Restaurant Supervisor is abrasive and arrogant. The air conditioner was not working daily even though Maintenance had been to look at it. The cleaner keeps disposing of the toiletries even though there were not empty, not very eco friendly
