Stayed for one night and thankfully it was only one night. Very noisy location, if you want a decent nights sleep don't bother. Nightclub next door and so unless you want to listen to the drunks at all hours I wouldn't bother. If the windows were double glazed then maybe it wouldn't of been to bad. Local clock chimes throughout... More

Stayed here with a last minute booking on a Saturday night, the reception area and rooms were nice, but the area is so noisy. If your wanting to get some sleep I wouldn't bother booking here as you won't get any due to the various nightclubs nearby! Was woken up at 1.30am by music and loud drunken people, this kept... More

Not too impressed, entrance,stairs and rear entrance could have been cleaner. Hotel a little tired and could do with a refurb. Staff very pleasant. I attended a birthday celebration. Food indifferent. Will not rush back.

Didn't stop at the Hotel but I recently enjoyed a Xmas party here. Service and food was outstanding and the whole Hotel and Cocktail Bar had a great atmosphere. Next time I'm tempted to stop over and try out the rooms.

I went here for my work Christmas party, the food was really nice, good entertainment, friendly and helpful staff, I would definitely recommend. I didn't stay over but those who did said the room was really nice.
