Booked this after getting a quote from their website online: £65 for two with breakfast seemed great value ( big sleep wanted £85 for the same night and frankly they can't get close to the standard set by the Royal).
We were in town for The Specials' gig at the indoor arena and this hotel proved to be a great choice, close to the train station and the after show fun.
The hotel is slap bang in the middle of the city centre but we could hear none of the associated noise from our room ( we were on the 4th floor which may have helped, given some of the other reviews here).
We were a bit apprehensive after reading some of the reviews on this site but frankly we had a great stay.
The hotel is modern and stylish and the room didn't disappoint-it was a good size and very well appointed (it had a huuuge tv too). It far exceeded our expectations.
The BeeKind toiletries were a nice touch and the hot chocolate and tea tray were great.
If you want a modern hotel offering great value and city centre convenience this is an excellent choice .... if you want deathly peace and quiet and plush luxury go and stay in manor house in the Cotswolds.
