Took me a while to find the hotel. Admittedly it was a dark and rainy evening. I was hidden away with the name and street number painted in red. I was apprehensive as I entered the entrance hallway and walked towards the hotels entrance doors.
The reception are by the door and my booking was efficiently handled. The lobby was bright and clean but the décor is closer to the 70s. I was on the first floor and the walk took me through some interesting corridors. My room was large and clean, although again in need of update.
The TV worked, the radiator worked (important on such a cold wet night) and there was a good selection of tea and coffee available. The bathroom was clean as were the towels.
Initially I was unable to connect to the Internet. Wifi was OK but no outward connection. A call to reception had the problem quickly fixed.
Spent some time in the bar which was comfortable but very quiet. I was the only customer.
My room looked out towards Piccadilly Gardens and I was concerned about the noise as the windows were only single glazed. Early on I could hear the passing cars and pedestrians clearly. Luckily by midnight things had quieted down.
The bed was very comfortable and I had a good nights sleep.
To be fair the hotel was everything I needed and reasonably priced. I would probably stay there again.
