Me and a friend stayed here for 4 nights in August 2013. At first I felt a tiny bit disappointed about the location. Yes, I suppose you can say it is in the city center, but it is still a bit to walk to get to restaurants, cafés etc. However, if you're there for clubbing or partying, then the location is excellent, as it is just by Broad Street with many big night clubs.
The hotel was very nice. I was surprised how personal it felt, although big. The staff were incredibly friendly and helpful, in a way which is not that common at hotels of that size. We booked a twin room but got a double, but was offered to move the beds apart, which worked fine. The room was big, clean and beds very comfortable.
Also the staff arrived straight away when there was some minor issues in the room.
A big advantage was the gym and indoor pool which guests could use for free. Very good breakfast buffé, although it was clear they mostly had British guests, as I always had to ask for extra cheese for my bread (all Northern Europeans wants hard cheese for breakfast).
I wished they could have free wi-fi in the rooms though, now it was only in public areas, and the lobby was actually quite small.
Overall - a very nice stay.More
