Stayed here for a single night in December. The hotel itself was nice with large spacious rooms and excellently equipped bathrooms (loved the rainfall shower). The room was nicely equipmed with Nespresso coffee machine (although some kind of key to what the different coloured coffee packets actually meant would have been nice), TV and DVD player & honour mini bar. I booked on the B&B rate which makes breakfast £10 rather than £12.50. There was a good selection of cold items in the buffet and a reasonable selection of hot items – a bit limited for a vegetarian, however they did make me a very nice omelette.
My only gripe really is that the room was clearly set up for two people, and yet there was only one armchair. Being a large room the TV was sufficiently far away the watching from the bed was not an option so had we wanted to watch TV or make use of the DVD player one of us would have had to sit on the hard uncomfortable desk chair. Quite frankly when the room has more than enough space to accommodate arms chairs or even a sofa putting in one chair is distinctly stingy.
A couple of things worth pointing out for anyone else thinking of staying here:
Parking – there is an NCP car park very close to the hotel that charges £10.50 for 24 hours, and in fact when I asked about parking I was told to use this rather than the £20 a night valet parking they mentioned on the web page. This is all well and good, but the car park is pay and display and will only take coins and does not give any change. So be prepared and take the right money.
Street noise – this is not something that bothers me, and when staying in a city I like to hear the hustle and bustle outside. However if noise bothers you then I will point out that there was a fair bit of it!
