Recently stayed in both 'The Sleepover room' and 'The Chocolate room'. I was a little dubious about the rooms from what I had seen on the internet, but let me assure you the virtual tours and photos do not do the rooms justice, particularly 'The Sleepover room'.
Easy to check in and pleasant reception staff, though we weren't informed about the VIP parking for the themed rooms and had to park a little way from the lobby, with a lot of cases to carry!
We decided not to have a meal, as it is very pricey indeed, though we did indulge in a few cocktails on arrival.
Firstly, 'The Sleepover room' is fantastic: dance floor, glitter ball, gigantic SMEG fridge stocked with cola and snacks. Music plays every time you enter the bathroom or the actual suite itself!
Fantastic makeup counter for 6, with little spa bags, hair dryer and GHD straighteners. Right next to the lift, so easy to transfer your luggage! There are two plasma screens and you can collect games from reception to play on the Wii and X box that are built into the dance floor area. Very comfy sleeping area, with soft furnishings etc
'The Chocolate room' really does offer unlimited chocolate. When we arrived we found smarties begin dispensed from the wall, chocolate hidden in hollowed out books and a chestful of quality street. They also have a sound box in the room that emits noises you expect to hear when on a train. Unfortunately, this decided to kick in at 3am and we could not turn it off!
My only quibble with this room were the bunk beds and their bedding, or rather lack of! My friend and I only had a very thin, scratchy bed spread, so we were shivering most of the night. The other beds had lovely big, soft duvets.
Breakfast was a little crammed, but fantastic array of food and buffet style, so you can eat quickly or leisurely, depending on your preferences.
All in all a very good stay and would be happy to return.
