Stayed in for one night while on business trip. Usually stay in IHG or Accor, made this as an exception as rest of colleagues were staying in for planned night out. The location is like most other hotels in it's class - about £8 taxi from town. The plus though is the food and amenities nearby as the hotel is in the middle of a retail park type area with a few restaurants and bars. Didn't have dinner at the restaurant so wouldn't know.
The upper deck rooms are brilliant for a well needed retreat. Artistic furnishing, comfortable bed & linen, over all functionally sound and working. Sky TV in room is an added advantage. The complimentary treats are also a nice touch. Reception staff are friendly & efficient - although didn't get the wake up call as requested - nevertheless other requests such asking for desk fan and cold milk in the middle of the night were catered for immediately.
Cleanliness would have been a 10 on 10 - except was disappointed to find a previous guests sock with the bath towel. Left it outside the room, called to say that I've left it outside, woke up in the morning, sock was still there.
As a recommendation - Upper Deck rooms are definitely worth it. Shame there are no points or not part of major chain - hence probably will return when in dire need for a good night sleep.
