My partner and I have just returned from a 2 night break at Wyndham Apollo. I was a little disappointed to find our room (32) was on the ground floor right next to lifts but once we got into the room it was modern, clean and noise from the lifts was minimal. The shower head was placed in a rather unusual place meaning you had to stand right in the corner of the bath to avoid drenching the floor (my partner learnt this the hard way and on our first night managed to leave about an inch of water on the bathroom floor!). The door handle to the bathroom was also quite loose and wouldn't allow you to shut the door. This was fine for us but I'm not sure everyone would be comfortable with sharing a room where the bathroom door doesn't close! We also found the bed quite hard and woke up aching like we'd slept on wooden boards.
However, I can't fault the reception staff. They were very helpful at check in and also storing out bags and booking the shuttle for the airport. The shuttle was very convenient and saved us heading back into the centre to catch the train. We didn't have breakfast so I can't comment on that but we saw the price and thought that was expensive.
Overall I think that the hotel is getting there, but just needs a bit more TLC.
