    nice hotel, nice staff. Really good pool.

    The location is not that great, though very close to city centre, it's not a great area to walk in at night

    Polite staff, large room, good facilities, great building.

    Rubbish food, evening meal and breakfast of a poor standard and vastly overpriced - should have gone to KFC!

    Value. Quality. Easy to get to - Short walk from the city centre but just off a main road.

    I enjoyed the location the decor and the relaxed atmosphere

    I was very disappointed with the evening meal I had

  • Couple
    9.2

    Staff were very helpful - we had trouble sleeping the first night as there was a lot of noise on the side of the hotel we were sleeping ( kitchen, pool ducting etc) - and we were moved for the next night. We thought breackfast until 12 was a brilliant idea and enjoyed an extra hour lie in with uot the kids!!

    The noise from pipe work outside - the first room was really comfy but the night time sounds from all the machinery was so loud - not only did we not sleep but we had headaches too. However your staff were very helpful the following day - although I would recommend this hotel I would tell them to ask for the quiet side!!!

  • Group of friends
    6.2

    slightly frosty welcome from the chap on the desk. Functional and no smile.

    Location is kind of central but not quite. I would not have felt safe walking down the road at night, it feels quite detached and isolated.

  • Older travelers
    9.6

    We particularly approved of the sensitive conversion of the warehouse into the hotel.

  • Older travelers
    10.0

    The design of the hotel, the furniture and layout was excellent and a cross between futuristic and retro.

    Charged for car parking on departure. Was not expecting that. It may have been in the small print which I did not read.

  • Older travelers
    9.6

    We liked the Freindly staff, lovely food, and the room was of a high standard
