Lovely room and cheeful happy to help staff. You can hear the bar from the rooms and the rooms themselves arent very spundproof, however had a wonderful sleep and wasnt kept up by the noise form the bar. Beds are huge and so comfy. loved the bathroom

4/5 Good

Rude bouncers mistook us for pub guest and pushed us out until we showed we had ID. Even though we had already checked in. Then they gave us attitude and make unnecessary comments. Should keep to their own business.

Fantastic - I'll become a regular!

Great room and bathroom - lovely and spacious and stylishly decorated. Each room has their own air conditioning - not always the case! Reception staff very friendly - although beware if you are looking to arrive very late, as you may not be able to check in. Don't judge the hotel by the stairways - they're basic(perfectly functional!) but the rooms are very comfortable. Overall a fantastic experience - have already booked my next stay!
