Tastefully decorated rooms, clean and functional. The food is good - but expect a bit of a wait. Don't be fooled into paying for breakfast in advance - it's better to pay when you are there - we almost ended up being charged twice. The waiters work hard, but beware of one particularly surly waitress. You'll know who she is... More

Kept waiting along time for drinks order after being seated 10mins. Young inexperienced staff not attentive at all, had to get up and walk round to flag down a waitress few times! food comes out warm halfway eating my meal it goes cold! And we are still expected to pay service charge after being disappointed and unhappy. This place lacks... More

This is quite a tough review to write because my overall feeling of the hotel is very much tainted by the lack of space and the very boring food but so many other things were really good. I would give this hotel top marks for cleanliness and also the decor in the room was modern and well maintained BUT it... More

Booked on line through laterooms.com for a Saturday stay, reception was helpful when she couldn't find my booking! Given 1st floor double room with window overlooking car park. Room was clean but I would call it tiny! we paced it out, just under 10ft x 8ft. Bathroom had a corner shower and complimentary toiletries comprised of piece of soap and... More

Eat in here 2 years ago, thought we would give it another try following a poor experience. Great concept opportunity to be a gold mine. Food very poor, young staff very nice. Needs some serious leadership!

Meh! Decidedly average, overpriced food but served by nice people. Nice idea, bland food didn't follow on though.....a shame really as has potential to be great! Didn't stay in hotel so can't comment.

Nice Bright Diner, American themed. Pleasant keen young staff. That's the good points. Food is no more than average at best and its over priced for what it is. TGI Friday prices but no where near as good, with fairly small portions, that are not particularly impressive.

Be VERY careful when thinking of booking this Hotel, especially if you book through Booking.com as we did. Although they advertise through Booking.com when it comes to paying the bill they try to charge you their rate.....and NOT the rate you got when you booked through Booking.com! very crafty! When I pointed out their error, they didn't want to know,... More

7HD, General Manager at 7 Hotel Diner, responded to this review

I am very shocked by your review as every booking that is received through sites like Bookings . com the rate is always honoured, we are not allowed to change the rate that the customer has booked. We have used sites like this for 5 years and never had an issue. We offer the best and lowest rates in the... More

Having read some of the reviews it is clear that this is definitely a Marmite place - you either love it or hate it! It has to be said that our room (at the rear of the hotel to avoid road noise) was very warm and was a bit shabby. Similarly the entrance lobby of the hotel could do with... More
