As soon as we arrived we were asked to pay for the stay? We thought this was very strange. You either take the money when booking, or settle up when leaving. Our room was very clean and tidy, and looked nice on first glance. The hotel in a word was "tired" from the letter "e" hanging off the hotel name... More

Stayed here over the bank holiday weekend and everything was fine. I was worried about some of the reviews, but I was pleased and surprised. Greeted by a very nice lady, who was friendly and extremely helpful. The room we had was large and well equipped. We had everything we needed. The continental breakfast was adequate, with a good selection... More

Funny time of year to go.Happened to be Gay Pride week Although I am not of that persuasion we had a really good time this weekend. The hotel was a job to find having no sign outside. There was a glass sign in the shape of a square which was I suppose to be the Hotels Logo. There was no... More

I don't know where to start but I think you will find that my photos tell you a different story to that of the accommodation as described anywhere on the internet! Overall, a hideous stay. Room was at the very top of the hotel, no lift! Fire escape was through the bedroom window onto a very narrow ledge...hope you're not... More

Spent a weekend here during the London to Brighton bike ride. We arrived early but the room was ready for us which was a nice bonus. The room was really nice and loved the bathroom. The service while we were there was excellent and the location for us was perfect too! Overall we were very happy with everything and would... More

While it may not be to everyone's taste, the hotel had a very modern decor and the room was clean and well maintained, although a little warm (no a/c), quite small and suffered from some outside noise. The en-suite was very pleasant and seemed recently fitted. The location is very central at the expense of any decent parking, so be... More

We paid £110 per night for a double room and were extremely disappointed. The room was scruffy, the furnishings tatty and broken and the ensuite bathroom smelt mouldy. As another reviewer mentioned, the door to the bathroom is glass, so no privacy! Our first night was hot, but the window was in a poor state of disrepair and could not... More

We stayed here a while ago now. It was recommended by Mr and Mrs Smith. The rooms were designed nicely but there was a very big massage chair in the room that didn't work which was a bit inconvenient. The hotel wasn't as clean as it could have been either which was a shame. And the pictures on line etc... More

We stayed for a weekend but was disappointed as it looked different to the pictures on the website. Very nice staff. The room smelt a bit odd, like old smoke. The decor was unusual and the shower was cold. I don't think we would return.
