Stayed in room 209 at this hotel for one night to attend an iternational rugby match. The staff were extremely helpful, the room was large & airey with clean bedding & towels, tea/coffe making facilities & a flat screen TV. We ate dinner & breakfast there which was slightly spoilt by the fact that the complete menu was unavailable because it was an international rugby weekend.(I couldn't quite understand that excuse as the fixture had been arranged & advertised 9 months before!)
On the minus side the underground car parking was full, there was a blocked/unclean drain smell in the en suite bath/shower room, the view from the room was an enclosed court yard & there was unpainted filler on the walls where repairs had been carried out.Room 209 is on the first floor nearest the lift which kept me awake until the early hours.
Overall we had a pleasant stay & would use the hotel again.
