I work in travel and have had the fortune to stay in some amazing hotels, but the criteria for this trip was a reasonably priced property for 6 women to enjoy a weekend away
I was not disappointed!
Greeted by a very friendly chap who sorted out taxis and extra pillows - good start.
We booked two rooms meaning someone would have a sofa bed. The rooms are spacious even with the sofa bed. Choice of firm or soft pillows. Only gripe about the room for me would be lack of a bath but there is a perfectly adequate shower
I like the free wifi (which I'm in now) and the heavily discounted parking in gun wharf (£2 a day instead of £20)
Some people have complained about breakfast. It's not a full service full English but doesn't advertise to be. I had sausages which were a little disappointing but the croissants, pain au chocolate, cereal, toast and fruit is plentiful and tasty
Over all, £100 a night for three sharing, including breakfast represents good value to me!!
