We stayed here as a family of 4 (two adults two kids- 7yrs and 17months). The good bits:
The family room was huge, and I mean huge! \
-It had been recently decorated and was very clean.
-Parking is on site but £12 per day (worth it for the convenience)
-Breakfast was great for us and the kids. Lots of choice and fresh
-Go for the packed lunches if you have kids. £4 for a great kids lunch was a job well done for us.
The only down side is the street noise. I guess this is only a problem if you have a room facing the street. The hotel is very near a rock club. This is ok if you are up for a big night out but no good if you've got kids who sleep at 7pm. Even with the windows closed we could hear the music. Things got worse at last orders. Drunken shouting and a fight one night kept us awake until 2am. The hotel appear aware of this issue and I believe are trying to work towards resolving it. But be warned. Steer clear of street facing rooms if you want a decent sleep.
Despite the noise, I would recommend this hotel. It is clean, well appointed and stylish whilst being really family friendly.
