Thought £200 was ridiculous for this hotel. Breakfast was not included.Room we had 243 was near a vent fan. Hotel looked a bit shabby.

Check-in was so quick! No passport or room booking proof requested and my room was ready a few hours earlier than stated as I'd arrived early just to drop my baggage off. Very useful having a mini-fridge and safe. The room has a designer basin but it's shallow and made so that you can't fill it up (i.e. no plug). The hangers are positioned half way down the wardrobe so I was unable to put my raincoat in there; it had to settle for a door knob instead. There were no hooks either including in the bathroom which would have made things better.

Reception staff gave exceptional service very helpful. The disappointment was the fact that the hotel restaurant was closed on evening as staff party. Booked this particular hotel as travelling with 3 year old and wanted to have meal in hotel at evening rather than go out looking for restaurant. When booked in was told pizza would be available in bar but staff on bar advised that no food was available. Resorted to local convenience store for sandwiches.
