There aren't any in the City centre, you'd be looking at the outskirts really.

Ange - which hotel would you recommend ? We are flying there and just want to relax and do a bit of shopping.

If you want to stay in the city centre (or close to it) the Copthorne is nice on the Quayside, Malmaison is nice too but its been getting some mixed reviews lately. Also, the Hilton is on the Quayside and is nice - these are all a short walk to the city centre.

The hotels in the city itself are a bit older but still nice, look at the Royal Station, County Thistle and The Vermont. If you want to spend a bit more you'd be able to get a suite at any of these. You should be able to google any of the above.

Let me know if you have any more questions

I have stayed in the Thistle and a colleague has stayed at the Station. They are nice enough but if you are serious about the 5 star thing I suggest those on the Quayisde (I have not set foot in these).

Good points there BigDave.

I'll just add that out of the ones I mentioned both the Hilton and Copthorne have leisure facilities and river views. The Royal Station also has leisure facilities which are newly built, the hotel itself is older but grander (some might say a bit tired) and is right by the Central Station.

The others don't have pools, spas etc

There's also a Marriott next to the huge Metrocentre Shopping Complex on the outskirts of the city - just 5 or 6 miles from the airport. Its maybe 4 star I think. There's excellent metro rail access from the Metrocentre into the centre of town.
