We had a great view of the cathedral from our room. The room and bathroom were spotless clean. The bed was super king size and was very comfortable with good consideration to pillow quality. The décor is relaxing and modern. There is plenty of room to hang clothing but shelf space is limited or too high.
The location is excellent, central to all amenities and facing out to the wharf harbouring many yachts and graced by beautiful swans and ducks.
There is a charge of £5 for parking but there is pleanty of room to park.
Breakfast was average, as a vegiterian I was left with little choice, mushrooms could have added to the variety. There is an option to order from a menue but there is an extra charge, however we sat at a large window over looking the wharf the view was incredible. The staff were friendly. There are no machines to purchase water but you can get it from reception 2 bottles costing 4.95. There is a nice bar and restaurant but we did not eat there.I would definitely recommend this place.

The pricey rooms have some great views but the beds need updating and bathroom fixtures needs attention. The restaurant is nice but only 50% of what was served was fresh the rest is from the freezer unfortunately.

Room tip: Booking online and select room via ihg app

Ideal location on the marina also burns off a few calories walking up the steep hill to the cathedral.Room was modern, lovely walk in shower,large double bed room nicely decorated.Free WI-FI worked well even in the room.Overlooked the car park could just about see the cathedral in the distance.Staff were very friendly and efficient.Evening meal was OK,buffet breakfast was excellent.would definitely stay here again.

Room tip: Front rooms overlook the marina.

I am a regular visitor to this hotel and I have to say although it has a number of great selling points; great location (rooms along the from have a great view of Brayford Wharf but these tend to be a bit noisier at night after people being on a night out and even those at the back that look onto the carpark are generally quite and you can see the cathedral), friendly staff, nice room sizes, comfy beds (always clean) time after time I have the same complaints;
1. car parking charges are additional - £5 a night.
2. TV's in the rooms are always on the blink. The one in the room I stayed in kept turning itself off ever 1/2 hour or so and then the controls kept freezing.

This time I complained about the cleanliness of the bathroom (generally not an issue here) and asked for it to be cleaned. Despite my complaint nothing changed and not heard a word. (see photo so you can decide for yourself if you feel this was justified).

Hi Tracey H,

We appreciate hearing from a repeat guest! Thanks for choosing us anew.

I'm sorry you're upset about the additional car parking charge, and problems with the TV and bathroom's upkeep. I've shared your review with local management and I trust their ability to correct these areas to serve our guests better.

On a brighter note, I'm glad you found our beds to be comfy and our location convenient!

Please give us another try in the future as we're committed to make your experience better than the last.

Best,

Pam G
