My husband booked this for my birthday purely on the fact it was something different, and the location was good. It is very dated inside and I couldn't quite put my finger in the musty smell. Maybe it was the smell of old age. We had room 523 on the 5th floor. The room was so small that there was...

National Holidays stay at this hotel was exceptional. Rooms were comfortably furnished, well maintained, regularly cleaned (2 changes in 4 nights stay), courteous staff, first class entertainment and good food.

The hotel was ok for the price, I guess, bed not the most comfortable and felt like the door wasn't really shut properly all night. The worst part about my stay (being someone who loves a hotel and a lie-in) was the 10am check out, I have never stayed anywhere with such an early check out.

Just never ever again. Never, please save yourself.. You may be able to tell, I didn't enjoy this stay or the follow up. Pros: Central location, foyer welcoming enough and has spacious communal areas for food and drink. The poor staff are quite lovely but have so many complaints to deal with. The two of us witnessed 5 complaints in...

I stayed here with my partner for her birthday Friday 6th January 2017... The lady who checked us in was brilliant. Cheerful and helpful - even advising us cheaper places to park for the duration of our stay which was beneficial information. Unfortunately we were both beyond disappointed with the room and will definitely not return in future. When we...

This hotel is in a prime location, but with no parking of its own. We did manage to park right outside in some council run spaces that are free from 1800-0900, I think we were lucky getting a space. The check in was pain free, the hotel looks a bit run down and shabby. On entering my room there was...
