Stayed here for 2 nights at the end of January for my birthday. We booked an upperdeck room with champagne and truffles on arrival - room was definitely worth the extra money, bed was massive and very comfy, very clean, modern and plenty of amenities including sky, bose ipod dock, starbucks package etc. Breakfast was good, restaurant was comfy and stylish. Victory pub also had a good atmosphere. Didn't use the gym or pool facilities but looked in and they looked of a very good standard. Staff were friendly and didn't leave you waiting, the only negative I would say is that our car broke down as we were due to leave and reception staff didn't provide any help to us with regards to that.
The location is ideal as there is a lesuire park right next door (walking distance) with bowling, cinema and a few casual restaurants. We got a taxi into town on the first night, (the hotel called us a taxi) and that only cost about £15. There is also 2 tram stops within walking distance that take you straight into the city centre.
Overall we really enjoyed our stay and would definitely return!More
