This hotel is not very attractive from the outside - bit of a concrete apartment block. It is nicer on the inside and had clean and spacious rooms. The restaurant has dark oak panels and furniture which makes it seem a bit gloomy. The food is quite varied, with some Italian, Indian and Chinese type things on the menu. A good range of starters, too. The Duck spring rolls were nice. Breakfast wasn't too bad but could have been better, being a self service buffet with a 'do your own toast' machine and rubbery scrambled eggs. Bit scant on the continental section, not much fruit and a choice of low fat Rhubarb Yoghurt or nothing, at least when I was there.
One thing that was annoying is that they itemise drinks separately on the bill. As a business traveller I am on expenses. If alcohol appears on the bill, I can not claim for it. Note I said 'if it appears on the bill'. My company doesn't care as long as I stay within my budget. Years ago the policy actually said 'reasonable amounts of alcohol will be reimbursed with a meal'. Unfortunately the tax man took a different view. If it says 'beverage' or 'bar' - that is ok, because it could be coffee or a soft drink whatever. I'm not talking about trying to get a ten pint bender past the accounts, here. I had just one small glass of wine with the meal - 165 ml - which they charged me four quid for. On my bill they itemised it as 'glass of wine' separate to the rest of the food, which just said 'Meal'. I asked if they could include it with the meal or change the description and got a flat refusal. I struggle to understand the mentality of hotels who insist on itemising alcohol when they know this must mean most business travellers must pay for it out of their own pocket, then put a HUGE mark up on it, and then wonder why we don't come back.
