Nice enough hotel with smart accomodation but I am afraid that this does not count for much if you cannot get a decent nights sleep. This was highlighted as an issue by other reviewers and the initial room that we were allocated overlooked a service area for a number of neighbouring restaurants / bars. The manager was very helpful in trying to offer us a different room but the best that he could offer, given that the hotel was full, was a room slightly offset to the service area.
I was hopeful that this would work out but was sadly disappointed and was kept awake through to c.1am by noise from the service yard as staff / customers made their boisterous farewells (on an otherwise quiet Tuesday night) and was rudely awoken at 7am by a succession of delivery trucks. The impact of sound-proofing from the double galzed windows was negligible.
Not worth the disturbed sleep I am afraid.
