I stopped here on a Sunday night (10.08.14) for my birthday, we arived in the luxurious hotel late afternoon and parked across the street in a separate carpark which was ideal. The rooms are beautiful, they have a mini bar, hamper basket full of treats (you have to pay for them), complementary toiletries, and we had a welcome tray with cold milk, ice, lemon slices and biscuits delivered to our room for no extra charge. The hotel is mostly for gay people and didnt bother us but what do you expect on canal street? It had a lovely atmosphere to the hotel and bar area and a real chilled out feeling which made it a great relaxed night. While we were out in the evening our room was 'turned down' which was a great touch they dimmed the lights put the t.v on and opened the bed up and layed chocolates on our pillows. Would definetly stay here again, we are planning to go back around christmas for a night out as the night life is great around the area.
