Stayed here whilst attending a conference and unfortunately it was fully booked so couldn't move room. Potentially could be an amazing art deco hotel but it simply wan't up to the required standard.
Generally staff are friendly and the public areas were satisfactory.
Room - small with double bed pushed up against the wall so only accessible from one side of the bed so not suitable for couples. There was a very strong stench of some kind of solvent which was unpleasant to say the least. Generally the room facilities were fairly basic but if they had been finished appropriately it would have been acceptable and perhaps even nice. Unfortunately it wasn't and the there were burn marks on the carpet (with strategically placed chair of course) and TV remote held together with electrical insulation tape.My room was immediately next to the lift shaft and unfortunately the lifts are old and very noisy so kept me awake all night (I even popped to Boots in the neighbouring train station to get ear plugs and that didn't help). There was also no hot water any point during my stay in my room. It wasn't just that it had ran out as I tried again in the early hours and again at 7am. Just tepid water to shower with. The bathroom otherwise looked OK other than long dark hair on the towel provided.
I tried the hotel food during the conference and it looked ok but actually was quite poorly executed. Had thai chicken breast skewers at lunch which were distinctly pink in the middle. Breakfast was nothing special, some rather limp anaemic sausages and had to wait 25 minutes to get coffee.
I suspect the experience may be considerably better when they aren't fully booked with a conference. I wasn't paying for the conference but if I had been I definitely would have refused to pay for the room.
In conclusion, food - not great, Sleep - non-existent due to noisy lift, Room - shabby in places, Bathroom - couldn't really use as no hot water! Very dissapointed
I would have much preferred to have stayed in another hotel, even a travelodge/ibis/premier inn
