“Decent hotel, rather isolated”
Reviewed January 5, 2013

This hotel is of a good standard and my room was good and bed comfortable, but it is a little isolated if you want to eat in the city centre, you will probably need to taxi because the walk is rather torturous if you are not familiar with the city. Meal in the restaurant was only average but breakfast is good , better than the Holiday inn Express next door. If you are not too fussed about a cooked breakfast , the Express is probably a better choice.

Dear Malcolmjb1952

Thank you for taking the time to review our hotel. We were pleased that on the whole you were satisfied with your stay with us.

I was surprised to read that you regarded the hotel as isolated being located in a City Centre location; clustered with a number of City Centre hotels.

As the City’s oldest hotel, the hotel is fortunate to have a panoramic view across the City and boast the easy parking with 260 car park spaces.

As part of the redevelopment plan, the City is improving its public realm, and it is envisaged that the Victoria Quays restaurants offering will offer greater variety. I am pleased to note you positive rating in all other categories.

We do hope to welcome you back in the near future, when we assure you of every attention.

Once again, many thanks for taking the time to share your comments.

Best wishes

I stopped here last year and by the look of previous reviews fell very lucky with my room! I stopped here with a groupon deal if i recall correctly.

The room i had was very modern and elegant it was on the top floor and a corner room. Very very spacious with a huge flat screen TV to give you an idea of the room size it had 4 large windows a corridor in the room and a porch way! Nice bathroom only thing was lacking a blind on window!

Very pleased with this stay and would stay again if i was the same room and also parking didnt seem to be an issue.

Lovely hotel. Close to City Centre. Reception Staff very friendly and welcoming. We only stayed one night so didnt have chance to use the spa or swimming pool. Will definately stay at the hotel again in the future!

Very nice hotel. Made to feel welcome by the very friendly reception staff. We had booked into the spa room. Very clean and spacious and the bubbling spa bath was superb. The bar was good and the prices in line with other hotel. I would certainly go back.

When I arrived, I was pleasantly surprised by the fantastic building and I was even more pleased to find its classic interior intact. It's like walking back in time while enjoying 2012 comfort levels.
I loved the stairs, the looks of the rooms and corridors and also the breakfast room is a delight to stay in.
All the basics were well provided, 2m bed, good bedlinnen and sufficient blankets. Breakfast was very good, but not included.
