Stayed one night with friends and what a pleasant change from the usual hotel chains I've stayed in. Tastefully furnished and comfortable throughout. Wonderful attention to detail. Spacious, clean, comfortable and well-equipped room. Comfortable chairs, well-lit desk, complimentary TV package.

I was pleasantly surprised with the atmosphere and general lively look of the hotel. The bar was cosy and inviting, and a fun place to spend an hour or two. The decor is modern and warm. The staff were friendly and professional. I ate one evening there and was impressed with the quality of the cooking. My steak was done...

Never stayed at the Penta Below, I needed to ask why from the second I checked in. Funky, inviting and provided a world away from the Holiday Inn across the road and a break from work mode that was welcome. Great staff, Free everything (Play Station, Mac, Films).

Room electronic lock was faulty, and not operational by key card. After 'convincing' the staff that I was in fact using the idiot proof card correctly, they followed me back to the room, where the staff agreed that the door lock was faulty (suspected battery issue). Asked to be moved, but was told the hotel was fully booked. When I...

We stayed at the Penta Hotel for our daughter's wedding. The hotel exceeded our expectations. It was clean, nicely presented and the staff were helpful and polite. The breakfast provided was excellent. A good choice to suit everyone and buffet style so one could help oneself. There was a good atmosphere at the hotel and we thoroughly enjoyed drinking in...

Noisy heating/air con. Slow Internet. Nightclub vibe. This is a good hotel if you are on a girls' weekend, and a bad one if you are attending a business meeting. The rooms are clean and compact, but the 'lifestyle' concept falls flat. The station and a reasonable restaurant are within walking distance but this doesn't warrant the price tag for...
