Had an absolute nightmare on my first night here. All is forgiven following the manager Andrew contacting me and resolving the issues.
I stayed on a Friday, the atmosphere was great in the lobby and the male receptionist was excellent and very good at his job.
The only disappointment is the room. The design is very Ikea, very shiny and this removes from the comfort of the stay. Bright orange hangers and huge paisley prints do feel like a bit 'argos'. In a hotel I always feel you want to be comfortable and relaxed not blinded by the furniture.
The room service is only 6pm to 11pm which I found a little disappointing. This is not a cheap hotel and considering the price charged for a room normally I would have expected longer hours of room service and also a mini bar.
however, the place serves a purpose well.
