Joined to the central train station - very handy
Posted Feb 22, 2017
Only needed to walk over to the corner entrance of the hotel set within the train station. Easy! We arrived early and asked if our cases could be kept, but the room was available to check in to. Our deluxe family room was on the 3rd floor - the hotel is huge with extremely long corridors but there is a double lift albeit it's slow. Unfortunately the room faced out onto the 'greenhouse roof tops' of the train station so nothing to see. Some of the rooms further along the corridor did face over the actual centre of the station. The room was large with a separate hallway and door to section off the bathroom and living area. Clean on the whole but dust on skirting boards. Very high ceilings and high old single glazed sash windows with black out roller blinds. We were surprised at how little sound came from the train station. Modern decor in black and silver colours with high padded headboard, reasonably comfy bed made of 2 singles pushed together, and a sofa bed. Matching black furniture - plenty of cupboard space and drawers. Safe in room, iron & board, slippers and gowns, no fridge though. Tea and coffee facilities. The key card was needed for the electricity/lighting. Plenty of wall lamps and a standard lamp. Main light not working. Toiletries provided, sturdy bath, nice shower, very roomy bathroom. Very handy being central to everything. Staff very polite and helpful and housekeeping were prompt. We ate elsewhere but buffet breakfast is £12 guest rate £16 usual rate.
