I often stop at this hotel, but haven't actually put review in until now. I usually only put reviews in for hotels which fail to meet good standards, and so by the fact that I've never complained about this one, it means it's fine, and so I thoguht that on balance i should put some good reviews in for hotels who have done well.
The rooms are comfortable, standard size, modern clean bathrooms (though a little on the small side) but only have a shower, no bath. Nice "White" range of toiletries too.
The rooms are clean, modern, and have an TV with built in DVD player. We sometimes take our own films to watch or you can borrow some complementary films from reception too. Just a word of caution though, they are "Mac's" and so for people who like me aren't familiar with them, I'd suggest you get someone to show you the controls. The first time we stayed there we didn't know how to eject the DVD as there were no buttons on it or the remote, the 2nd time we couldn't find the power switch and thought it was broken. And the 3rd time there was a glitch and it has to be restarted, but these are just minor things mainly brough about because I'm not a Mac user.
I like a few of the little touches like the fact that you get wine glasses and tumblers in the room as opposed to many that just give you you tumblers in the bathroom! The other thing I've noticed here time & time again is that you DON'T get disturbed by guests in other rooms, they seem to be well sound proofed.
All in all I like this hotel, and will be stopping there again at the end of this month.
The only down side to this hotel is that it can sometimes be very pricey, and sometimes they offer good rates. When it's pricey i stop elsewhere, when it's a reasonable rate I choose to stay here. It may be a supply & demand thing, I don't know, but sometimes saturday nights here are cheap and sometimes very expensive.
