I stayed at this hotel from Friday 12th July to Monday 15th for the same convention as Chloe-Louisee below. We were her friends who wanted to be nearby yet ended up at opposite ends of the hotel. Whilst looking at their room, it seemed nice enough, yet once reaching our room at the other end of the hotel, it showed that their end was clearly the nicer part with theirs being dated as it was. Our room was throughly outdated in comparison, the shower wouldn't turn off so was continuously dripping, the spare pillows in the cupboard had blood stains on them... unimpressed.
The (very loud) air con in the rooms done the job but not in the convention centre. With 300 people in one room, it was horribly stuffy without fully functioning air con. And with it being the hottest day of the year, we kept going to the bar to request water to find it shut. We would then go to the other bar to either find it shut or to be instructed by the rude staff behind the bar to use the WARM water in the jug at the end of the bar (although I'd like to add that there was one very lovely lady behind the bar, just the rest weren't so pleasant) and were very unhelpful with providing cold water (probably because we weren't interested in paying £3.50 for a cup of lemonade like one of my friends did).
I wouldn't stay here again but if you only need to stay here for one night, it's not so bad. As someone who came here for a convention... I'd just recommend using the Premier Inn across the road instead to escape this hotel during the evening.
