Just the same as any other in the Chain, but with a brilliant location for the theatre. We looked out of our window and the Playhouse was directly opposite. Slight noise at night if your at the front, however it was a Saturday. Great location for restaurants as well, with Mama Romas being excellent. When we were there you got 10% off your meal at Mama Romas if you presented your room key.
The only let down was the breakfast (what a rammy). The restaurant is split over 2 floors which meant carrying trays of hot food up and down stairs, which wasn't easy when it was as busy as it was. Needs to be better organised. The whole breakfast experience was a bit Butlinsy, however the food was okay.
I would stay again if going to the theatre.
