Visited Mardi Gras 2, aka Northern Star for a friends getaway. Upon arrival, we were given the TV remotes in reception and asked for full payment, which is fine. But when we asked what time breakfast was, we were told they don't do breakfast, despite that being supposedly included in the price. We were given our room keys but no... More

Had a very nice stay here, the guy running the place was friendly, very easy to talk to and helpful, the bedroom was small, the bathroom was large, the bed was comfortable, good parking around there, close to all the gay clubs, I will definitely be saying there again,

Bathroom was fine although toilet took ages to fill after flushing so was loud! The staff we encountered were friendly and check in/out was easy! Funny girls,kaos,the flying... More

This is an absolute hovel. On arrival we were not made to feel welcome, the guy had no interest in us whatsoever. There was explicit gay porn magazines in foyer. Room on 3rd floor and no offer to help getting cases up the stairs. There is no breakfast even though all the sites state breakfast included, if you would like... More

Myself and 2 friends stayed here from Friday to Sunday. I'd read a review saying someone didn't feel welcome as they were straight but that's rubbish. We're straight and were made very welcome and the guy who checked us in was very friendly! The room was very clean and a decent size for the 3 of us. Beds were really... More

Havent got a bad word to say about this hotel! Came with a friend for a few days away. The location is brilliant, especially for Funny Girls and the gay scene, there are takeaways near by too, and in good location for the shops. The bar wasnt open in our hotel for the first couple of days, so we headed... More

Thanks for everything Dylan and for making our stay... More
