I booked Double Tree because I love their cookies you get at check-in, the Crabtree & Evelyn shower amenities and they offer great value for money (sorry DoubleTree: I took everything home because we don't have C&E shops where I live).
We arrived early, and since it was such a busy day, no rooms were ready yet. Staff at reception went out of their way to still check us in, but it was really hectic and no room was availble for us. No problem at all - I was impressed with the service given at reception.
We went into town and returned later, and we got a key to the room (unfortunately, no cookie). Room was perfect.
Travelling into town with bus 5 was nice and easy (2.20 one-way). Bar prices were pretty steep, but a local Chinese man runs a small bar/snack bar next door - worth a visit.
Breakfast was nice (scambled eggs were undercooked - but loads of other things available).
When checking out my BF mentioned how they forgot our welcome cookies.Promptly they provided us with two freshly baked chocolate chip lovelies. Thumbs up!
Next time I am travelling, I will definitely prefer DoubleTree for my stay again.More
