We stayed for 1 night as part of a coach tour. Location could not be faulted and view over river lovely.Situated just minutes from town centre. Check in quite reasonable, and quick, given the numbers arriving, and we were extremely pleased with our allocation of a standard room overlooking the marina area. 2 double beds, good size TV, sufficient hanging...

We were part of a coach group that stayed here for one night on a Sunday in August. There must have been 50+ passengers on the coach, but we were handled very smoothly by the 2 receptionists and had our room keys within minutes of arriving.

This was the second time we've stayed at this hotel. We first stayed for one night two years ago, after a wedding and most of the wedding guests were using this hotel.

I'd read a few 'negative' reviews and as a result had some doubts about using the hotel for a 2 night break, but risked it. In hindsight, I shouldn't have had any concerns - the staff were very helpful and friendly - the room was very clean with great air conditioning - the location is superb on the waterfront -... More

Stayed here for two nights while visiting friends. Superb location on the Waterfront so a choice of bars, restaurants, coffee shops (and even a cinema) within a couple of minutes walk. Away from the town centre bustle but close to it and to the Cathedral & Castle. We had a ground floor room at the front of the Hotel and... More

I've stayed at this hotel several nights a week for several months while working on a project for work and the staff have always been friendly, the rooms have always been clean (decor is a little dated but they have started modernising some of the rooms and is certainly not as dated as some hotels I've stayed in) - the...

This is in a great location next to a renovated wharf with nightlife area right outside the door and a Starbucks in the lobby. Room was good: clean, spacious enough, quiet. Pain to find the place by car, even with SatNav, because you have to actually drive on the pedestrian area, and then pay extra for parking. Come by train!

Just back from a weekend at this hotel. Superb location directly next to Brayford Wharf. Lots of pubs and restaurants nearby, but away from the bustle of the city centre. Staff were all very helpful.

Stayed here in a standard room on the Friday night before Waddington Air Show so the hotel was pretty busy but didn't hear a thing outside the room.
