The Hotel is fairly big, comfortable and well decorated, however it has an odd layout. We were on the 3rd floor, requiring the use of 2 lifts and multiple long corridors just to get to our room. This could become quite annoying during a longer stay.
The room was spacious, with a decent bathroom. Free bottled water was provided on arrival and there are tea making facilities in the room. The bed was unfortunately two singles pushed together, both of which had quite tired mattresses. Not a bad night of sleep, but I wouldn’t want to sleep there for multiple nights.
Parking costs around £7 a day even for hotel guests. So add that to the cost of your stay. There’s little to no free parking nearby.
The spa was unavailable during our stay due to renovations. So I can’t comment on that element.
The bar is ok, but not particularly well stocked. We didn’t eat dinner in the restaurant, but we did have the breakfast. The food was good - standard buffet style - but the coffee was awful. Despite having a proper coffee machine in the hotel, they give you what tastes like burnt instant coffee with breakfast.
The area around the hotel is weird. There are some really run down areas and lots of homeless people. It’s not a particularly scenic place and not somewhere I’d go on holiday. There are however some good restaurants and bars nearby.
