Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

DO NOT BOOK. The hotel decided to cancel my New Year's Eve booking which was paid in full back in March saying they sent an email I never received. They them made it was a 3 min night stay. The email which went to wrong email said cancelled due to no deposit. We had nowhere to say. We had travelled from Birmingham. Awful. We ended in a hostel. One room with 4 beds. No apology.

Well deserves the 4 star. Could not fault this hotel. Great location just a short bus ride from the city (buses every 5 mins). Modern rooms. Lovely staff and a great continental breakfast. You really don’t need a cooked - it had absolutely everything! Would definitely stay again

This place was a very unexpected surprise! Absolutely wonderful experience here! The room was large, very clean and the most comfortable bed I’ve ever very had in a hotel! The staff is beyond helpful! They tell you the breakfast is just a continental breakfast but it’s much more than just breakfast! Cereals, pastries, toast, meats, cheeses, yogurts and many other items! Thank you Nicki and your fabulous staff. We enjoyed your hotel so much! Especially the chocolates! Definitely would stay again! Thank you! Laura McC

A disappointing experience overall. Definitely, not a four star experience and not a boutique hotel as people might generally understand it. To be fair, our room was fine and the bathroom excellent and the lady in the breakfast room was very friendly. The continental breakfast was very ordinary and not at all what you would expect from a four star boutique hotel. It wasn't a bad hotel but just not what it said it would be.

Unfortunately this hotel is in need of updating as everything looks tired, 1st night we stayed we noticed one of the curtains was hanging off, also there was constant banging all night long, found out in the early hours of the morning after not much sleep that the window fastener hadn’t been fastened, so with the strong wind this made the rattling banging window, then the next morning the toilet flush broke , it was repaired but with instructions to leave a gap before re flushing, I explained that , that wasn’t the problem their was no resistance to the flush as it had obviously broken inside the cistern, we also had to point out the stairwell carpet was dangerous as it had come loose, we were told to be careful when using the stairs, I suggested that the receptionist put a wet floor sign on the stair to make other guests aware, the beds were wobbly and bouncy , every movement was like being on a boat, then to add insult to injury the noise at night from other residents banging doors as well as the couple that had an argument at 1:30 am. Finally going quiet about 2:00 am..The continental breakfast was very amateurish …. Each to their own I for one won’t be staying again sorry ..

Very tired decor and unsatisfactory continental breakfast. There were no pastries or fresh bread, poor selection of cereals and the coffee was very weak. Had to ask for toast that arrived in the form of warm bread and were told that they’d run out of croissants. It is very sad when this level of service is deemed to be okay.

Perfect 2 night stay during the fringe, cosy room with everything you could need. Quiet location but still within walking distance of all the action! Gorgeous building, friendly helpful staff & great breakfast choices. However, you cant really tell how good a hotel is, until something goes wrong! For us, we found after we arrived home, that we had left some clothes in the wardrobe. The hotel were super helpful & managed to organise getting the items back to us. So grateful. This hotel will be our first choice when we return next year.

The hotel itself was soulless with a teenager on reception (sometimes). Rang the bell constantly and no one came. Hung around until someone eventually turned up. One large dark room to side with a sectioned off bit built in corner for shower room. No extractor fan inside. Then after traipsing thought the city all day long I couldn’t sleep until well after midnight because there was an empty restaurant downstairs blasting out heavy bass music. Very disappointed as not a cheap hotel and why allow a restaurant below to do that anyway!!???!? JUST INSANELY BAD BUSINESS! Do not stay here if you want to rest and or sleep. Never coming back and definitely not recommended 😡

I was in this hostel a couple of months ago, everything was very poorly managed, there were damages in the rooms, the breakfast was terrible and the owner (a certain Niky) was very rude to me and my companions. unfortunately it was a very bad experience and I do not recommend this site to anyone.
