I was somewhat apprehensive having read the reviews on here about the hotel but decided to make my own mind up.
Where's the problem people?
I had a lovely, warm welcome at Reception who fulfilled my request for a non smoking high floor room. Check in was efficient.
My studio (junior suite?) was lovely. Absolutely spotless, very comfortable and well thought out. The decor was elegant and spacious. The living area had a two seater sofa which was very comfortable, the flat screen TV (limited channels) could swivel to face the bedroom or the lounge.
The bathroom was again, spotless and the shower was large and very powerful. Perfect.
The bed was comfortable but as an arthritis sufferer, I would recommend pillows from home - in the hotel, one was not enough and two were too many so I did struggle with comfort somewhat.
The hotel has subsidised car parking at a very reasonable £4.50/day and you are free to come and go as you please.
Opposite the hotel are some eateries - I chose the Istanbul - please make sure you choose it too - the food is really rather delicious - i ate in one night and had takeaway the second and it was of consistent high quality and excellent value for money. There is also a late shop which is great to pop into for a cold drink etc for your room if the hotel bar is not your scene.
The hotel's charge for breakfast was far too much in my opinion and I chose to have a room only basis.
Having said that - I was offered a 10% on all food and drink purchases in the hotel.
The hotel itself is well situated for exploring the local area. I went to Stratford which was a pleasant but short 25 minute drive away.
Thumbs up all round I think - I would most certainly go back.
Oh - and for those who complained about the lift noise in other reviews - yes - it is audible - but it is neither disturbing or distracting.
