The hotel is located in The Light, a large complex with shops, a cinema, etc. It wasn’t easy to find the hotel entrance… you have to keep going west on The Headrow, just past the signs for The Light on the right. Turn right just after that. Go to reception to ask for directions to the car park. You have to go through the complex to get back to the hotel. There are lots of shops in The Light and a variety of restaurants. We got a business suite and it was immense… bigger than some London flats! Even with its large size, the room still made good use of space. Good lighting too. A bigger TV would have been better though… for the type of “luxury” room it is. The bathroom was a bit small and lacked counter space, although there is a type of shelf right outside the bathroom door, near the wardrobe (there’s another circular wardrobe in the middle of the room). There could have also been thicker, better quality towels. The bed was a bit too soft but the pillows were large and very comfortable. There is an easy-to-use espresso machine. You have to insert the hotel key card when you come into the room in order to get electricity. So if you are 2 people and you think you won’t need two cards, we suggest you get two of them anyway, in case one of you wants to go out and get something. You have to take the card with you because you will need it to use the lift to return to your hotel room. One of us went out to get breakfast and had to take the card, which left the other one of us in the dark until he got back. The business suite looks out over the main street and on a Friday night, it got a bit noisy, even with the double windows. Our rate included admission to the fitness facility and pool (located in the complex and not in the hotel) but we didn’t go there. It also included breakfast but we opted to sleep in and get something from the complex. Parking is expensive; even with the £4 a day discount for hotel guests, it was £15 a day. In short, we had a pleasant stay and will probably use this hotel again, as its location is quite convenient and it is a modern and stylish hotel.
