I stayed here to attend an event hosed by a client. The hotel was fairly good in most areas and the bed was very comfortable although the soft furnishings in the room were past their best. The main negative point was, I was with a number of clients and colleagues and after the event had finished (this was in a private suite) some of us made our way to the residents bar for a late drink. When we arrived, the bar area was open but there was only one member of staff who was on the front desk. We asked politely where we could get a drink and was told the bar was closed and the only way a guest could have a drink was to go to their room and order room service or use the mini bar. Now I can understand this in a small hotel or in a quiet town but we were supposed to be in a 4 star international chain hotel in Britain's second city. Every other hotel of a similar standard I have stayed at usually allows residents to have drinks in the bar area, maybe served by the night porter but this kind of put a dampener on the evening and especially considering my client had spent thousands of pounds with the hotel on their event earlier in the evening and the number of guests attending the event gave the hotel thousands of pounds more in accommodation revenue.
