Really friendly welcome in the bar/reception area, explained about the hotel having free pool table & pinball machine & 24 hour bar service. Rooms are good, location is great and a fantastic choice at breakfast. Will definitely use again.

Stayed here previously when it was Ramada Encore and was very happy with my stay and the level of service. Since its become a Pentahotel the changes are not really what I expect of a hotel of what claims to be a 4 star hotel. I walked in the bar area and could not find reception. The staff did not...

Good location for function at ICC I was attending. Unfortunately I was woken up at 3.30 by returning guests on the same floor who were calling out and slamming and knocking on each other doors. The bedroom door did nothing to keep the noise out.

great Value for money. Classy, modern place. Friendly Staff. Relaxed environment but the kettle and dryer were unpleasant and didn't work. Great location for the city Centre. We stayed for two nights and were able to watch multiple films with their variety of latest films on the lovely television. definitely come here again. Plus the complimentary pool was fabulous.

Absolutely wonderful and cool hotel. Staff are friendly and helpful. Really cool decor etc. Rooms comfy and clean. Will definately return and bring my mates. The pool tables are really colourful too and the bar as your check in is awesome. Excellent value for money, highly recommended.
