We had en enjoyable overnight stay here. Staff were friendly and efficient and the room was as we would have expected it to be at a Premier Inn, with the added bonus of an excellent view from our fifth floor room. Location is excellent, handy for getting to any of the city's main attractions on foot or by tram. We didn't eat there so can't comment on that aspect but the only thing which stops this being a five-star review from our point of view is the strange situation of the 11pm bar curfew, which surprised and disappointed us - and from earlier reviews I have read, we clearly weren't the first. We were back early from the show we went to see so by the time the bar manager came round at 10.50 or so to say the bar would shut promptly at 11pm, we had had enough to drink. But if we had been coming back from a later gig and not been able to get a drink, we would have been sorely disappointed. Earlier in the evening, I actually asked what time the bar was likely to shut that night and was clearly told midnight, so that was irritatingly misleading to start with. It was quiet by closing time, admittedly, but we had seen at least three hen/stag parties leave the hotel for elsewhere earlier in the evening, so they would have been very disappointed when they returned. Why the rush to shut so early in a city centre? Surely all the extra revenue gained from an extra hour or two would cover staff costs.
