Room excellent but very disappointed that I was charged for a parking space even though I am disabled and have a blue badge. To cap this, the lift from bar to 1st floor restaurant was out of order at breakfast time

The hotel was in the ideal location for us as tourists with bars, restaurants and shops only a few minutes walk away. The room we booked had to be changed due to a broken bathroom tap but we were quickly upgraded as a result. Our bed was a little hard for my liking but apart from the that the room... More

This is the 5th time e have stayed at this hotel with our Border Collie, Flynn. We always enjoy it as the hotel is situated on Brayford Warf with beautiful views on the marina. The staff have always been friendly and helpful. We will definitely return.

Flying visit but the hotel was exactly as it was advertised. Slept well. We were using our IHG points so the night was free but this made no difference to the staff. Only issue was a small one, and was the slow service at the bar. Other than that, no problems.

My wife and I stayed here on a quick night away. Finding the car park is a bit baffling as you have to drive along the semi-pedestrianised wharf but the location was worth it. The Brayford Wharf area is bussling with modern eatery chains. A 5 minute walk away and you're on the High Street with cafes and whatnot. Head... More
