Amazing value for money, three adults for £69, most other hotels of similar quality were over £100. We thought that was going to be the best bit but on arrival we were greeted with a clean modern reception, friendly staff and a fantastic room. I spent 15 years flying all over the world living in hotels and I can honestly say for the rate, they've really got things right here.
Essentials they got right:
Aircon/Thermostatically controlled heating
Plenty of towels
Good size TV
Radio alarm clock you can plug your smartphone or ipod into
Secure entry points to stairs and lift (requires key card)
Clean bright modern reception/bar/breakfast area
Cooked and continental breakfast included in room rate (and all very nice indeed)
Free gym facilities
Genuinely enthusiastic staff (from who we met)
We paid £7.00 in a taxi to get to into the city centre, I walked back it took me 15 minutes. There is also a tram stop less than a minutes walk from the hotel. Tesco express 5 minute walk up the road. Parking is extra I think it's a few quid but as we arrived after 6 on a Sat it was free for the rest of that night and for the next day.
If I'm going to balance this with some negative feedback it would be some occasional annoying noise during the night (I am a light sleeper), not anything to do with the hotel but some inconsiderate people staying in a room below.
In summary great value immaculate rooms helping to make our weekend away great. We will definitely stay again because of all of the points mentioned above. So often hotels miss something but not on this occasion. I genuinely believe if you can offer something that is fit for purpose, ticks all the boxes and is not over priced (like other similar products on offer), you will do well - people will want to keep coming back.
Thank you and keep up the good work.
