Okay, truth is for some purposes this hotel may be ideal, but...
Initial impressions (hence the Old F**t concerns) were along the lines of 'Whoa, why so much orange in the decor"? & "Not especially comfy environs" (hard chair smallish desk - waveform as well, go figure when your laptop etc is boring old square edged). This followed by an attempt to remember the SciFi film Woody Allen made yonks ago & "isn't this from Austen Powers"?
Wasn't just me either (OK, the candidates were a similar vintage) one - The Quiet American - kept looking about & saying "Faaaarrr Ouuuttt".
As time passed the positives finally made their way through my beleaguered senses:
1) The room I had (2nd floor rear) was both quiet & of a good size. That of a candidate - street side - was, he complained, noisy.
2) Inter room sound proofing is good.
3) I was able to re-jig the furniture (moving table finding cushions) such that the room was both practical & comfortable & - big plus here - housekeeping left things where I'd put them (I promise I put them back in the original positions prior departure
4)The hotel is well located - mind you, so are lots of others...
5) The staff were helpful. Just don't expect to see lots of them.
1) Although food is available nearby there are no restaurants within the hotel hence no room service (yes, I know I could go for carry out, lots of people were)
2) Breakfast buffet is poor & overly priced. (A couple of the candidates were visiting a nearby wetherspoons for what was reported as very goodeggs benedict for less money)
3) Not particularly competitively priced Staying on business - a seminar - so unaware of pricing I subsequently discovered that one of the candidates had elected to stay at an equally well positioned hotel as it was 60% cheaper.
Would I stay again? Yes, if somebody else was paying.
Would I choose it myself? Probably not.
Would I recommend it? Possibly. But not to anyone on the verge of Old F**rtdom.
