I stayed a second time at the Fire and Ice in Melrose Arch. The area is good for browsing around, lots of boutiques, fashion brands and a good range of restaurants. So the hotel has a good location. The staff are friendly and helpful. The rooms are stylish as long as you don't mind the shower in your bedroom, but that layout does create an impression of spaciousness. I enjoyed the breakfast. Freshly cooked eggs, lots of fresh fruit, good toast and hot tea! Plenty of buffet food for all tastes and continental cold plates and pastries. I was less happy with the restaurant. Burgers with all sorts of toppings and shakes dominate and the service can be very slow if the bar is busy. Yes, I'd stay there again but I wish for greater choice on the evening and sharper service!
