I like the lobby in this hotel which is bright and fresh and the reception staff are friendly and efficient. The restaurant area is extremely attractive from an architectural and decorative point of view and the breakfast selection is very good. They are also very happy to just serve you a coffee in the morning if you want them to.
My room was on the 5th floor and under the eaves so it was very large. It was also extremely clean and comfortable. It had tea and coffee facilities and free internet which was very helpful. The only problem with the room was the noise early in the morning - not sure what the banging and crashing was about but it sounded like someone using a punch bag. The other issue was the torrential rain crashing onto the leads outside the dormer windows. Clearly the hotel has no control over the weather but I'd ask for a room on a lower floor if it is raining when you visit!
I did not use the smaller bar area or have dinner in the hotel so cannot comment on those.
It is very well located with the up-market shopping district, a lovely park and the trams and other transport links either just outside or within minutes and it is situated right next to a canal.
Overall very good experience.
