We stayed here with our dogs for a long weekend and found it to be an acceptable dog friendly hotel. The entrance, bar and restaurant areas were very nice and the food in the restaurant was excellent. The bar prices where a little steep, over £8 for a couple of drinks. The service was average, some of the staff are slightly abrupt in their manner and some training on how to address customers politely would seem to be in order (for example, when paging the front desk from the car park rear entrance the receptionist simply says "Pull the door!", or waiting staff simply say "finished?" when removing empty plates). Our room was terribly dated and a little shabby although clean and functional, as a dog friendly room one usually expects the more dated rooms so it wasn't a major problem. The hotel is within easy walking distance of the shopping centres and barbican and the free parking is welcomed in a city hotel. We'd most likely visit again if staying in the area but would probably prefer a more recently renovated room.
