I am sorry you felt upset. You booked the best room for £110, but you did not take the time to look at the description or photo's. We only had 1 room left the night you stayed which was a standard double. We had no other options for you because we were full. As there was nothing wrong with the... More

We booked this hotel through Groupon, a steal at £50 for a double room. Dissapointingly little availability and also really disappointed to have not been told it was a budget room beforehand. Would have happily paid an upgrade as it was a much needed treat. All staff were lovely, especially the young man who checked us in. Breakfast too was... More

I am sorry you were disappointed with your experience. We have been upset ourselves with the way groupon have handled our campaign. As you will see, on all our sites we are as clear as possible about what you will expect when you arrive. I urge everyone on a groupon deal to look at our site before they arrive. The... More

My husband and I booked to stay at this hotel last Saturday 17 January 2015. On the Friday evening, my 82 year old mother was rushed into hospital and we were in A&E until 3 in the morning. She is actually still there a week later and still very unwell. When I called the hotel on Saturday to explain, they... More

Obviously, peoples circumstances can change at short notice, but you had a considerable discount on your booking because it was non-refundable. It is always best to take travel insurance to avoid loosing money. As you chose to use an agent, we would have been out of pocket because of the short notice. I was in no way unsympathetic to your...

A very comfortable stay and within walking distance of the theatres and the promenade. This hotel has an excellent parking area at the rear. The beds are extremely comfortable and the rooms refurbished to a high standard.

Last minute single room booking to meet friends in town. What a comfortable, friendly stay. Great location too, and even let me park the day of checkout while I finished my Christmas shopping. Will recommend to others, thank you!

Thank you! We can usually let people use the car park a little longer with the exception being if a conference or group booking are coming in. More
