I had an awesome overnight stay! The bed was super super comfy, & the girl at reception was awesome! I also ordered room service for dinner & breakfast, and the food was superb both times! Would definitely go back.

Clean hotel, good friendly staff and in a great location. Stayed as a couple on a short visit with overnight bag. Didn't eat at the restaurant so can't comment about that. Sky TV ok. Fast internet. Building is a bit of a rabbit warren but no problems whatsoever. Happy to stay here again.

We stayed two nights and were treated to a comfy, warm room that was clean and spacious. Service was outstanding and we even got a free upgrade. The location was perfect for our night out at the TSB Showplace, and just to wander to parks, shops, galleries. Hope to stay again.
