Place was smart and clean, great location. When we got there we got upgraded to a junior suite (v good value considering we only paid £169). The place was huge with a little living area and even a proper dining table!
If I was being extremely picky the bed was a little small and the mattress could have been better quality. Also the shower was over the bath and it would have been nice to have a separate one. But these are all things I'd really only have the right to complain about if I'd paid over £500 a night (which I didn't) so really just opportunities the hotel could take to make the place better if they wanted to compete a level above.
Another v small niggle - the bar area was pretty uninviting and when we got back from our show had a lot of lights on (just felt way too bright so we gave it a miss). It's an area where they could do with somehow developing a better ambiance.
Breakfast was fantastic too so definitely worth trying out.
Overall did everything it needed to and then more so although there are still some things it could do better I wouldn't hesitate to stay there again and would definitely recommend it to anyone wanting to stay in that area (eg going to a show).
