We stayed in this Hotel this week (January) with snow falling outside. Twin bedded room (7th floor) had no carpets and was freezing when we arrived. We turned the heating on on arrival but, I had my coat on top of the bed as there were no blankets or rugs in the room. My husband did not bring slippers and found the bedroom floor and the bathroom floor very cold. Shame no one thought to put the heating on in anticipation of our arrival.
Otherwise a good location, complicated to drop off luggage and then park in multi storey and find oneself into the Hotel, which is covered with scaffolding and the reception upstairs (2 different lifts to get there) Staff, food, and service all excellent. Great location.
