“Excellent location for shopping and restaurants”
Reviewed 25 February 2014 via mobile

Stayed here with my friend room was clean and comfortable . The location was great and central for bars and restaurants. We ate at nearby after seeing Sarah Millican which was only 5 mins walk. The car park was close and only cost £5 for 24 hours so meant we could go shopping next day which again is only 10 mins walk. Would definitely stay here again.

We had an excellent stay at this hotel which is clean, comfortable and very centrally situated. It is 5 minutes walk from the train station - so close the taxis won't take you. Whilst you won't get picturesque views - it is surrounded by high rise buildings - it is in a quiet courtyard with no traffic at the front of the hotel. The rooms are a good size, the beds comfortable and the bathrooms clean - shower no bath for the rooms we had. The breakfast is self service but provides cooked as well as continental. The coffee, whilst machine made, is really quite good. Not continental standard so if you are French or Italian you may be disappointed but by UK hotel standards it was a decent cup of coffee. The staff were charming and extremely helpful. There is a bar which is open in the evenings and perhaps during the day although we only used it in the evening. So all together a very comfortable stay and at 45 pounds per room excellent value. Would recommend it.

Excellent staff, clean, well equipped room with free wi-fi and breakfast included. Hotel is a 5 minute walk from the main train station and is in a safe, non-threatening location. Check out is 12 o'clock so no need to rush. Advance booking is recommended as savings are considerable over arriving on the day.

Not the first time I have stayed here and always has the same good professional team to welcome you and deal with any issues or requests. Since my last stay they have upgraded the TVs and have free wifi throughout. With a free hot or cold breakfast included this is a great place for families, individuals or groups wanting to be in the centre of the great nightlife of town.

Perfect hotel for business trip and a good rate. Location great for Metro, walking to the city, St James Pk etc. This isn't 4 or 5 start luxury but good standard hotel, better than the Premier Inn in the city (much quieter) and having breakfast included in the price useful. IHG cardholders get free wifi, but it is very slow but you can puchase wifi upgrade (I used my mobile broadband instead).

This is a fairly new hotel and the standard of décor reflects this. The rooms are clean and well fitted out. The bed is very soft but that is personal. I do not like the soap containers screwed to the wall, I think this cheapens the place. Nice large shower and a good size desk if you need to work. Internet is free but very, very slow unless you pay a premium.

It is about 5 minutes walk from the station and very easy to find. It is about 10 minutes walk from St James so if you are going to the football and travelling by train it is ideal. Breakfast acceptable and a very nice bar area.Staff all helpful and polite.

Hotel is spacious, clean and bright (not to the point were it gives you a headache) I like the idea of having to use your room card to use the lift so you don't have unpaying guests wondering upstairs. I left a couple of cards in my room which one of the house keepers kindly handed into reception for me to pick up. Breakfast was a little confusing, I did want a full english but didn't know if I had to ask a member of staff or help my self so I just settled for a bowl of cornflakes and a glass of juice. The hotel is on a busy road but after about 9pm there wasn't much noise.

Room Tip: Akbars is about 100 yards from the entance and there is a premier shop just over the road from Akbar...
