Neat upbeat hotel
Neat upbeat hotel. Staff was friendly and the hotel was clean. Attached bar open 24 hrs and the restaurant food was pretty good. A bit further away from nightlife than I would like. It not an unreasonable walk or cheap taxi.

Overpriced & Oversold
Wouldn't recommend due to horrible customer service, cheap rooms and poor location.

Could have been great
Rooms not as nice as shown in the photographs. By no means bad though. Took forever to check in due to the lack of staff available. Car Park was £8!!!!!! Meal was all over the place, took forever and I received by starter after my main. Wrong drink served and the food was nice, but massively over priced. ALL systems went down meaning complications with payments, receipts (expense NIGHTMARE for me!) and no Wifi all evening. Pleasant and apologetic staff, seemingly let down by a lack of any management or enough of them to cope with problems.

Stayed here before, so thought I'd stay again. First experience a lot better than this one. On booking a city view king bed. Was given option of ground floor, right next to noisy road with a double bed, or 2nd floor with twin beds. No breakfast included which I knew about, but at £84 for the room to then be charged an additional £8 for the parking I was unimpressed, as this was not stated when I booked. Won't be staying again.

Never Again
Absolutely horrendous. Rude check in staff, booked a double room but given a twin room. When I went to reception to asked to be mvoed was told I cannot be moved but why don't i "just push the beds together". Disgraceful Food in restaurant was cold and mediocre. Hardly slept as there was a train line active from the early hours right outside my window, nobody advised of this either. Shower had 2 cold or melt your skin off hot. Upon check out the "gentleman" at reception did not want to know of my concerns at all. Overall, absolutely dire.
