The initial impression of the hotel from the outside is that its a standard city hotel (similar to our holiday inns). The reception area and bar/restaurant were tidy and welcoming. Once your out of the lifts on the bedroom floors then its a different matter, it looks like a purpose built prison cell block!! This 'effect' does not immediately have a positive impact on everyone but its certaintly effective. The main point is the actual rooms and they are more than adequate, some dont have the best views but they are spacious and clean. Most if not all also have a desk to work from. A great shower as well. The A/C was too noisy and left off, this would be a major issue if really hot.
So the rooms get a positive, unfortunately the bar/restaurant area can be abyssmal at times. The barman is very able but if its busy hes on his own. The waitresses can take an eternity to serve you, i waited 25 minutes to receive a beer and then had to repeatedly request my change - another 40 minutes later i was informed that there was no small change!!. Totally unacceptable. The breakfast fare was good, although it resembled a bun fight at times. Generally, i thought it was very satisfactory, and would be a good if the service was better. Its a 10 min walk to the V&A which is handy.
