Rooms with a balcony are very small, so would recommend an upgrade.
Good location with restaurants and bars within easy walking distance.
Breakfast is a shambles, every thing has to be ordered individually and would seriously suggest that this is reviewed by the management.
We spent an hour and a half on our first morning and not far short on the second day.
People arrived after us and were being served first.

Dear Cozzythebubble

Thank you for your valued feedback and response.
Firstly in response to the small rooms with balconies, we are a heritage building and a converted Power station built in 1940. The design of the hotel was developed around in keeping of the equipment and conversion of this building into a 5 star hotel. The breakfast service delays is not acceptable and I do apologise for the inconvenience caused. We will work on improving this moving forward.

Yours in Hospitality,
Chris S

Real fun for me - the hotel is built around an old B&W boiler, and this and the turbines, control panels, valves and superheater are all on show. I worked for B&W for years!!!

Great service from lovely staff - definitely one to return to.

A very unusual hotel in an old powerstation. The old machinery and the brightly coloured pipings provide a special atmosphere. The colourful furniture and the layout makes you feel comfortable. The spacious and luxury rooms make your stay very pleasant.
