    5/5 Excellent

    The room I had was excellent in terms of space and facilities and the room service manager and staff were very helpful.

    Stayed 2 nights in Nov 2019



    No real reception area. Room location was terrible - next to lift and overlooked busy thoroughfare - couldn’t sleep due to noise. No housekeeping during my stay. Very disappointing overall.

    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.
