Great hotel in city centre. Restaurant overlooks Piccadilly Gardens with big glass windows. Staff really friendly and helpful when called upon for assistance. Small rooms and soft, sagging mattress.
Several of the (expensive) menu options unavailable in main restaurant at dinner. No scallops one night, no avocado the next. Fish & chips came with mushy peas with weird inclusion of spicy jalapeños; just killed the dish. Perhaps that justified them charging nearly £15!
Beware, all food bills have 10% service charge added automatically. I left a tip on the table as well, not realising as this fact isn't printed in the menu (anywhere obvious at least). Only when I checked out the next day and examined the receipt more closely did I spot it!
My major annoyance was the guests in the next room. Walls are paper-thin and even a normal conversation can be heard next door, never mind a group of people coming back from the bar and congregating in one room at 2 am. I called down to the front desk who took immediate action to reduce the disturbance. Trouble is, as I said, even a normal conversation can be overheard and this went on well into the night meaning I got very little sleep.
