Being in the Quayside Hotel actually feels like being on a ship. The interior designer has absolutely chosen a theme and gone with it, all the way! The bathroom has a navy flag design decor, a lot of rope has been used throughout the hotel, and our room was out back - across a gangway-like passage. And oh! There were actual sailors walking around in the street outside of our room ;)
This hotel is definitely nice and clean, but it did actually lack a bit of soul. Can't put my finger on it… But it does not feel personal. The personnel at the reception were nice alright, but nothing special. We had to pay extra for breakfast even though we booked the bed-and-breakfast option. And the breakfast staff acted like they've never had a guest before - they just kept talking and talking and talking, when all we wanted to do was to eat breakfast. Don't get me wrong, talking to new people is my favorite thing to do - but not before my morning coffee.
Ah, enough with the complaints - this hotel is definitely ok. I really have no complaints (as I believe it was a real bargain). I can recommend it if all you are going to do there is sleeping.
