My wife and I stayed here for 2 nights B&B on December 1st. We were allocated a room on the 7th floor which had been recently refurbished.The room was fine but the bathroom was very small. Tea making facilities were of the bare minimum with no biscuits. We did not like the menu for evening meal so ate out. The...

The hotel is really handy from Piccadilly station. It's a grand looking hotel from the outside and quirky inside. The reception is themed with umbrellas decorating the ceiling area, a huge deckchair and sunglasses. The check in is informal with a bench type desk. Brill so far. Bar area is modern and great atmosphere serving food. Allocated a room on...

Was here on business for one night. The hotel was clean and so was the room, and it was...functional! Ticked all the boxes without being pretentious. It's difficult to say any more than that. Served a purpose. Well located for transport and in the heart of things.

This hotel was excellent from start to finish. At reception, having already checked in online, we had a slight delay but a perfect time for a coffee. The rooms are functional, a little on the small size but has removed all the tat you usually get for no reason. The room came up to the usual high standard expected of...

Not a patch on the old hotel. Writing this at 02:34 as cannot get to sleep because of wonky air conditioning, noise outside and hearing every move of the moron in the room next door. I asked for a quiet room. Room small, no storage, cheap and tacky and a wash basin that has no plug. Total rubbish. Will never...

Having stayed here before on a number of occasions, I was excited to see how it had changed now that it has been re-branded Ibis Styles. It took me a while to work out that the 'style' of this particular hotel is the weather. My first disappointment was the reception - replaced by a very plain table and receptionists using...
