Hotel easy to find with satnav, although the parking has a different postcode, parking £20.00 for 24hrs. Hotel initially nice and the reception staff and doorman were very helpful. Double room was very large and comfy but found there were very few extra comforts eg spare pillows, toiletries, towels, biscuits, light above mirror not working although there was complimentary bottled...

Arrived late on Tuesday night to find the bar was actually very busy. I was at the hotel for a conference so assume it was for this reason but it provided a nice atmosphere. The hotel itself is very nice. I would easily stay here for a night or two for a holiday etc. Again, the staff were very helpful...

We stayed here for 3 nights in room 620, room was spacious and clean, and for being next to the road the noise did not bother us. Staff were very friendly and welcoming. Only flaw to our stay was the fire alarm sounding at midnight, and the staff on shift seemed clueless as to how to handle the situation it...

Stayed as part of a business trip. Very good check in and the rooms are really comfortable. The highlight was the piping hot buffet breakfast. Also a very good location as less than 5 minute walk from Piccadilly station

The hotel has a lovely reception and staff are helpful. Unfortunately the room on the 6th floor when we went to bed mid week was noisy (not enough glazing for being next to a busy road) and mattress was one of the worse I've every slept on - hence a poor nights sleep which is all you want ! Get...

My girlfriend and I stayed overnight and were upgraded on arrival to a Panoramic Suite which gave a brilliant view across the City Centre and the snowy mountains in the distance were clearly visible and made a lovely backdrop for a morning tea. The food was brilliant and the drinks reasonably priced. Part of our stay included a Spa visit,...
