We booked this hotel as research showed it was close to the Opera House where we were going that that evening to watch 'Singin in the Rain.' It took us approximately five minutes of a gentle stroll from the hotel to the Opera House.
The Hotel staff were very friendly and informative.
We stayed in room 208 which is adjacent to the main road.
The King size bed was very comfortable. The rest of the room was OK with the usual facilities.
The wifi worked in the bedroom. The only reason I mention this is I have stayed in some hotels when you had to go to the lobby to get a descent signal.
The shower was very weak and it caused my partner difficulty when she washed her hair. A problem I don't have being follicely challenged.
The gym looked well equipped although we didn't use it we did use the pool, sauna and steam room. As good as any other I have used.
The reason I have given this hotel three stars is down to the double glazing (i think). Having had a god night out in Manchester we collapsed into the very comfortable bed only to be woken by the sound of voices coming from people passing by on the road below. In the morning I opened the windows and then closed them and the difference to the traffic noise was minimal.
Check-out was very smooth and I mentioned the noise issue and the receptionist said he would make a note of it.
After paying the £10 car park fee for 24hrs we left to make our way home.
Would we stay there again? Not to sure.
If you want breakfast it will cost £7.50 if you pre-book it or £8.50 on the day. We decided not to bother with the breakfast.
