Stayed here for two nights (Monday and Tuesday). Business trip. Room was very clean, and bathroom satisfactory. The hotel was quiet. The bed is quite hard - a mattress on a piece of wood, but slept well the second night.
There are quite a few restaurants and bars nearby so you don't have to go too far to eat, but it is all a bit sterile with no soul and most were empty. Pizza Express is very close, but by the time my colleague and I left just before 9pm we were the last in there. Went more into the centre the second night and found a great indian restaurant which was much better.
The main problem for me was that there was no virgin mobile reception at all in or near the hotel. I managed to get and send text, but could not make or receive any calls during the two days. There were a few odd moments when I received missed calls. I was on the first floor and also tried on the third floor to no avail. I asked reception if others had complained, and was told no they had not, however another customer overhead me and said they also had problems with this. Although the hotel is OK I would not stay here again because of this as it was very inconvenient.
