I booked this hotel for a business trip based on reviews here and was not disappointed. The hotel is quite modern using a bright colour palette and contemporary furniture. Each room has a feature wall of a photo... mine was a wheat field... which surprisingly isn't overwhelming. The bathroom was spacious and featured a seperate shower which I love. However, you had to take care on how you close the door so water doesn't leak all over the place. The bed was so comfortable though and my corner room had loads of light. Staff were great... both on reception and in the restaurant. I'd order there and have it delivered in good time to the room. And a late check out was given without a hesitation.
I only had to small negatives. First, the internet. Its free, but in the room it is wired. This meant I had to do work, watch a DVD with my laptop on the small desk. Not sure why all hotels don't offer wireless these days.
Second, when I booked I asked and was given the government rate. Shortly afterwards I found the hotel room had a better price on the website available to all. I felt that whether you ask for a specific rate, if a better one is available its only courtesy to offer it. I got it in the end.
