I stayed in the hotel on business, I had the pleasure of working with a couple of colleagues in the bar all day. The hotel is in a great location with half the rooms, the bar, the restraunt and meeting rooms over looking the Marina and out to sea. Each of the marina facing rooms has a small balcony that you can stand on. Around the hotel are several restraunts and loads of shops including a 24 hour ASDA, Indian Restraunt, Pizza Express, Chinese, Nando's, Subway, Mc Donalds, an American Bar and loads of boutique shops.
The public areas in the hotel are really well presented and clean, it's a nice place to be and the bar was a relaxed and comfortable area with a terrance overlooking the Marina. The staff were very friendly and the poor barmaid who look afterwards late in the evening did a brilliant job.
After spending time in the hotel I was a liitle disappointed when I went to my room. The room was fairly small, from what my colleague told me we worked out that the rooms facing the Marina were quite a bit smaller than the rooms facing in land. The bathroom was nice with a bath and shower, very clean and the towels were excellent. The Bed was very comfortable, a good TV and a B&W stereo if you have an Appley device, no good for me. The main thing that put me off the room was the strange racks that held the TV, acted as a table and you hung your clothes on. They looked horrible, more in line with a Formula 1 or Premier class than a hotel this good. I'm sure they could refit the rooms with more appropriate storage etc. Some of my colleagues complained about it being hot in their rooms, I didn't notice this so can't comment.
The breakfast was great, good options and very good service.
The hotel also has free Wifi (always Welcome). All in all I spent over 24 hours in the hotel, ate a very nice lunch in the bar and had a fun evening. I would definitely recommend this hotel.
