This is my second stay here, the first when it had just opened and was still a little rough around the edges. I've just returned for a night here, and it's been finished, but missing touches you find in other hotels, that I come to expect nowadays.
In terms of the basics, it does them quite well. A comfy bed and blackout curtains are always needed for a good nights sleep. However, the toiletries are very poor quality, and seem like they've been watered down too much. The shower gel has a consistency of water and like the shampoo, aren't that great. The room lacks features that other similar hotels provide. E.g. USB charging ports, MP3 docks/chargers, plug sockets near the bed, etc.
I only ever saw one person working in reception at a time, so there were a few delays there, and the comments about the lifts are all true. Slow and small.
It's not a bad hotel. The staff I talked to were friendly, the bar man was great, it's just it could be so much better.
