Whilst I totally understand the challenges in the current climate, I feel customers should have been made aware of of amendments to specific services prior to booking so they can make an informed decision as to whether to book. -The take away breakfast was not highlighted until check in and certainly not worth the money. I would have booked room only and made alternative arrangements -hiding the bar opening hours (5pm -9pm)in a QR code not available until you’re in your room wasn’t helpful. Even then, in amongst all the other information, I didn’t notice the closing time. It also didn’t state that there was a very reduced range of beverages. We had arranged to meet family at 8pm in the bar, this was the actual reason for our visit. Again we would have made alternative arrangements had we known. - bar staff not highlighting that the bar was closing at all. We went to order a round of drinks to be informed that the bar was closed. Not in the least customer friendly. In all we were made to feel like an inconvenience. This could have been avoided if the website had stated that there was no reception/lounge seating areas, takeaway pre packed breakfast only and very limited bar service. None of these are deal breakers but allow customers to plan their stay accordingly.

Thought I’d give this a chance after reading all of the bad reviews, my god am I kicking myself. Worst nights sleep ever. Confusing check in, couldn’t understand the person checking us in at all. Confusing parking situation. Room was okay size, though the bath had cracks in it so no chance of using it, would’ve all poured straight back out again. Bed was like sleeping on pure springs. TV sound was echoey, clearly needs replacing. The worst though is the walls are absolutely paper thin, as are the windows so you hear EVERYTHING, inside and out. Only positive was the location and the air conditioning. Great for drunk people, absolutely dire for anyone remotely sober. Honestly other than for a night out, DO NOT STAY HERE.

I stayed in this hotel for 3 nights from 26th February. For a friends wedding. The room was lovely and I really appreciated the nespresso coffee machine felt like a home from home. They brought me more as we had a family room and my children enjoy an espresso in the morning it was no trouble. Room was different then a hotel and was comfortable. The staff from start to finish where exceptional. I returned home to find a special pair of shoes missing, I thought I had just misplaced them at home as I was about to move house and assumed they where packed. I moved unpacked and still couldn’t find my shoes. I emailed them during lockdown, I almost gave up hope not knowing where they was. I sent another email a couple of weeks ago and the manager replied and had my shoes. I was overjoyed, they are irreplaceable and limited edition. The cleaning staff are nothing but honest and full of integrity. I cannot thank the entire staff from the bottom of my heart enough for keeping those shoe’s. If you wasn’t fully booked today I would have stayed another night after just returning from the south of France. Bravo and thank you so much for looking after us and some prized possessions.

Good location for nightlife and city. Service pleasant, but room not so much. An old sock stuck to the roof, fag butts on the balcony, charity-shop decor with military green walls, empty fridge, and this was a premium room! Also stitched up on price. Booked by phone for one price... It was doubled on arrival.
