“Great location!”
Reviewed August 22, 2005

Chose the hotel because of a great deal on the internet and were pleasantly surprised that there was no 'catch'. Although the rooms are in need of some refurbishment and the floorboards creaked so loudly its a good job I have a deep sleep, the hotel was clean, the service very friendly, breakfasts substantial and above all the location is handy for all local attractions and the station is walkable. Overall good value for money if you're able to get a good deal!

I stayed here on business and as the taxi drove up thought wow, entarnce and public areas looked good and interesting being in a former glove factory.
The staff were very welcoming and pleasant in all areas of the hotel.
But my bedroom was a little shabby, the carpets were worn around the edges and the furniture was chipped and blemished.
If like me you prefer duvets, be warned they use sheets and blankets.

Looks great from the outside, a converted glove factory. We stayed in a so-called executive room for £20 extra per night. There was nothing executive about it. The furniture was battered, the flooring in the bathroom had holes in it. The wallpaper was peeling off the wall. In the main room the bed was comfortable however there was no air conditioning and the window opened only a small way. The plug on the kettle was dangerous (loose screws) and was overdue its annual safety check according to the sticker on it. The extractor fan in the bathroom didn't work.
We stayed only one night and were in too much of a rush to ask for a room change. However, the decor outside our room suggested other rooms would be similarly lacklustre. The carpets in the hotel corridors were dusty and the walls scuffed.

When we left we raised these points with the staff member at reception who seemed unsuprised and unconcerned. I expect the owners are running it down and may well sell it soon.

A disppointing brief stay for us. I know we Brits are generally tolerant and I expect a more discerning American visitor would be even more disappointed.

I recently visited the Hotel for my cousins wedding and was pleasantly surprised with the Hotel. Even though it is located in the City Centre there was good car parking facilities and little noise.

I really enjoyed my meal during the reception, with nice friendly service.

We stayed at the Fownes hotel in November 2003. The hotel has a lot of character but unfortunately they dont make the most of this. The public rooms were very bright, particularly the bar and dining room - no atmosphere. Food was overcooked (burnt even) need a new chef! Situation of hotel excellent 100 metres from centre. Staff very helpful. Room comfortable. Overall good value for money - suggest you eat out.
