I stayed here for two nights as part of a business conference. I turned up late after a journey through some really bad winter weather so was looking forward to a warm, welcoming hotel.
The underground parking was Ok but the layout of the car park with cars jammed in means it has to be valet parking- not great if you want you car in a hurry, although the night attendant was very helpful.
Check-in was prompt and they did a good job of sorting out conflicting bookings I had. Bar service was lively and service at breakfast was very good (as was the selection).
The hotel is astoundingly well situated for tourist areas, eating and drinking and shopping so so far so good and totally pain free.
The joy free bit comes from the hotel itself. The reception area feels like an empty shop, the bar has no atmosphere and it is difficyult fr a group to get together in it. my superior room was on the top floor so had lots of dated furniture, and damaged walls etc with a sloping ceiling meaning i felt confined.
the hotel does not do justice to its location nor to the friendliness and willingness of the staff.
