Modern, new, high-tech, attractively furnished hotel. Booking just over a week before staying meant £120 per person per night (twin room) without breakfast - £14.00 p.p.: Pretty standard but well cooked. Staff very friendly and helpful. Free wi-fi. Technical, person-less airport type check-in/out via keyboards embedded in columns in reception worked for few people. Hotel seems to concentrate on groups and conferences. Food in restaurant no more than 6/10 - minimalist and overcooked. Charged a service charge, tip and gratuity on same bill. Member of staff explained that some diners "just pay" and others "get annoyed" - perhaps "the management will change it" (sic).
Special advance request for room on high floor was declined at reception, despite fact that hotel was not full. Owners said to be experienced but obviously need more learning!
