From the beautifully decorated reception, I had high hopes for this hotel. These rapidly disappeared when we crossed threshold of the Flower Suite into a vortex of bad quality.
The decor was straight out of the seventies, the walls were covered in white building dust, the plugs didn't stay down, the bedroom light flicked on and off due to poor electrics and the promised safe was non-existent. To top it all, our room backed on to a building site where work started at 7am - even on a Sunday!
The suite, was, however very spacious for 5 people and did have robes, in-room tea-making facilities and reliable wi-fi. With a plentiful breakfast, helpful staff and a good location near the station, there are some plus points but not enough for me to consider returning.
