I stay here on a regular basis as my office is along the road, staff are always welcoming and have my room ready as a reward member. The hotel is rather dated so was great to see the refurbishment started and I look forward to seeing the results over the coming months. I think they have done a great job... More

Arrived to a building site. Looked closed even. The reception was a ports cabin whilst renovation was going on. Walking down corridor to room in plaster covered floors and wires and work men. Awful. No facilities. Had to go to the holiday in express where the lighting and general atmosphere was cold and just awful. I'd have not stayed but... More

we visited here for 2 nights in October 2015 to see Kevin Bridges at AECC. First night we were unable to sleep because of noise from vents outside window (think they were part of kitchen in hotel). so second night they moved us to another room on a higher floor and in front of hotel and it was lovely and...

I recently stayed here for 2 nights to save on travelling for work amidst the crazy weather conditions we were beginning to see. The room was spacious and clean, however a bit dated - hence the refurbishment of the hotel I believe. The bed was a bit too soft for my liking but it wasn't the worst I'd slept in.... More

My 3rd stay at the hotel. Staff are very helpful and accomodating. The Hotel is now being refurbished, and I look forward to seeing the results. The rooms are large compared to modern equivalents. Breakfast has a decent selection, and the hot breakfast is above average quality. Will return next time I'm in the area.

I think the hotel is about to undergo some renovation work in 2016, I hope they do the bedrooms as the one we had was 'tired'. Along with the décor the phone wasn't working and the bathroom sink didn't drain properly. We stayed at the hotel as we were attending a gig at the AECC, and the how the hotel... More

Stayed here last night while attending a concert next door. Ate in the restaurant before the concert where the food was very good and the service very efficient and friendly. Definitely recommend the spicy chicken wings. Room was clean and tidy with very comfortable beds, and the showers are some of the best I've ever had. Would definitely stay here... More

We chose this hotel because it is so close to AECC. The reception staff were very friendly and helpful, check in was very simple. We were on the 5th floor, the lift system was very efficient, no hanging around waiting for lifts. The room was very comfortable, usual tea/coffee, tv, WiFi, bath or shower. The room was very clean, though... More
