Usually stay in a well known chain but was recommended park avenue by a colleague, hotel looks modern from the outside and one of the best welcomes ever by reception, their training or recruitment is outstanding, receptionist friendly and remembered by colleague from previous visits- nice touch. Bar was traditional with a modern touch- I liked it anyway and staff were attentive even though busy. Food typical bar food but ok maybe not inspiring but enough choice,
Rooms large with plenty of tv channels and huge bed. Decoration good. Bathrooms again modern with bath.
Overall an excellent independent hotel whose staff give it that extra tick. On business so not sure about the local area. Did see some pubs and takeaways etc near by and a tesco extra almost opposite. On east side not far from city airport
