Stayed here for two nights in October and what a lovely experience it was. The hotel is a converted warehouse which means it has much much more charm and personality than some of the glass and concrete hotels that are going up.
Our room had a massive comfortable bed, space and with the exposed brick and original beams and pillars, it made the room seem charming and welcoming.
The bathroom and shower was 1st class. The TV was a flatscreen Samsung unlike the ones in the older photographs on here.
Breakfast which is a generous buffet affair was taken in the ground floor restaraunt overlooking the river, very nice.
The bar area is very nice indeed, (and great for celebrity spotting) although you wouldn't want to spend an evening in here due to the prices, and with the city centre bars, and restaraunts a short walk away.
My tip would be to use the NCP car park opposite Granada studios next door, and/or in the parking bays on the road outside which are free after 6pm, and all day Sundays.
All i all, an excellent hotel, and i cant wait for my next stay.
