This cost a little more than I usually pay for hotels as I tend not to spend much time in the room but the location of this was spot on as I was going solo to a gig at The Academy and it is a two minute walk. The staff were great - genuinely polite and friendly (I am really irritated by fake enthusiasm in customer service) and although I didn't require any assistance I am sure they would have been helpful.
The room was large, as was the bed and the bathroom (without a bath) was also spacious. The shower was brilliant - definitely my favourite hotel shower ever and the anti fog mirror and the backlit shaving/make-up mirror very useful.
The complimentary snacks in the mini-bar went down very well after the gig but not generous if two are sharing (a pack of crisps, kitkat and two cans) maybe there is more if there is not a single occupant?
My room was overlooking the stage door of The Academy which was a bonus for me as I got a glimpse of the band I had seen, but the street was very noisy - I am a good sleeper but I was kept awake until around 3am by a deep bass/ club music sound.
Breakfast was really good - lots of coffee and perfect poached eggs.
Would absolutely stay again if I was treating myself
