Let me start off by saying the staff are great and couldnt do enough to make sure we were happy. probably a little over attentive to be honest. top marks. Room was clean and although not terribly modern was perfectly adequete food was great, veggie option was pretty much all mine as none of the swarms of biddys seemed intent... More

Got a good deal on executive room, pizza and a drink and breakfast for £49 for a twin room. Was at a gig and would have missed the last part of we had got last train home so if was ideal. Very dated but ok for a one night deal

Booked this hotel with a Groupon voucher deal which included one nights bed & breakfast plus two 9" pizzas with a glass of wine each. What a great value for money deal. Our room was large, clean and warm with kettle and hairdryer. The bed was very comfortable and we had a good nights sleep and the breakfast was more... More

Good price for location of hotel. When you arrive reception area looks nice but this isn't represented in the appearance of the rooms, which are outdated and in need a make over. Our door didn't open all the way and only one light worked but the room was quiet at night. Staff were friendly. A updated room design would make... More

We walked into this hotel by chance as it was in a good location and had a grand entrance and stairs. We were able to book online for 1/3 of the price at £55, I feel for those who payed full price. After walking down the corridor the smell of smoke felt it was suffocating me and the room was... More

Fifteen friends attended Jenny's (downstairs) for our annual Christmas Party. A great time was enjoyed by all. Food was good, very well organised, staff were efficient and friendly. We will be returning again next year.

On the 11th of December 2014 with other 8 other customers, I was trapped in the hotel elevator for almost 40 minutes. The hotel response to this situation was poor and potentially dangerous. After 20 minutes in which the hotel employees tried unsuccessfully to open the doors, I had to call the fire brigade. No manager was available to discuss... More

It's clear that this was once a beautiful and grand building, but unfortunately it's now in desperate need for a significant dose of TLC. When checking in there's a 50p charge to pay by debit card, £2.50 for credit card. I mean come on, if your advertised room rate is £159 per night who's paying in cash?!! The corridors to... More

The hotel is in the centre so good location. Now for the downsides, there are hundreds of rooms and just two small lifts so when we checked in so were a lot of other people and we had to queue for quite some time to get in the lift. We were on the 5th floor, the rooms were small and... More
