I go past this hotel alot and always wanted to stay there as from the outside the blue tall building looks amazing ..We stayed at this hotel as we were meeting friends for a night out in the city. We checked in at around 6.30 pm, friendly receptionist..given a key card and times of breakfast etc..we had to use the card to activate the lift which was great for security . We were on floor 8 which was only a quarter of the way up.. Plenty high enough for me as I'm not keen on heights.
The room was pink, modern but I was a little disappointed with the decour.There were no plugs by the kettle..Bed comfortable and big.standard room only has a bath with shower in it. Full glass windows, great view but windows dirty outside .when I'd looked on the hotel website rooms were around £125/180..we paid £85 with breakfast.. Look on hotel comparing sites..prices are so different.staff called us a black cab. Helpful staff.
There was security on arriving back at the hotel early morning ..we had to be let in and our card key shown. Great for security.
Had a great night sleep.
Breakfast was brilliant. Eat as much, fruits, full English,cereals , breads,spoilt for choice. For what we wanted and location it was great, a few minor moans but as we only paid £85 with bfast we were happy..no parking. Look on NCP parking and compare the parking in the city too as this can be so differently priced..
