We arrived to check in and was invited to check out late as we'd signed up for the loyalty scheme, that was nice and actually worked out well for my plans. The room was fine, a little dated but the bed comfortable, the bathroom sparkling clean. No iron in room had to ask but that's fine. Staff were all genuine...

Hello Shanice R, I am sorry that you were not given the room which you had booked for. Sometimes when a guest books with us on certain travel agent websites they do choose to stay in a standard room, which then gives you a drop down menu asking which room you prefer (double/twin). However in the small print of this...

I've stayed here a few times and sadly each time this place looks more and more run down. As a spire elite member I was not offered a welcome amenity and upon entering my room along with the stains over the carpet, theres a physical hole in the door with toilet paper stuffed in it. Lots of screaming from loutish...

Nice clean hotel however staff could have been more attentive. We were on the 9th floor so nice and quiet and breakfast good in the morning. Easy access to train line and town centre. Lovely view from the room.
