Fine for a very short stay.
Posted Sep 14, 2011
We chose this hotel for its location, and weren't disappointed by that. It's right in the centre and close to the waterfront. However that's where the positives rather peter out. The room was fine - clean and tidy. The bathroom was tiny and you had to do contortions around the door to get into the shower - and this is one of their brand new rooms in the half-finished new wing. We had booked a double but found two small twin beds not even pushed together. We had arrived at about 3am and couldn't face making a fuss or asking for a change.
Breakfast was, to be frank, miserable. We only made that mistake once, opting the next morning to go in search of a waterfront cafe (which we found 3 mins walk away). The staff were friendly enough but the lobby was chaos after we had checked out. Staff bellowing at each other from across the huge lobby to be heard over the din of 80-odd newly arrived guests waiting for their rooms to be ready (which seemed to take several hours).
It's one of those places that when someone asks, "how's your hotel?", you reply with a shrug, a sigh and say, "It's fine".
But next time we'll spend a fraction more and go elsewhere.
