I booked an executive double room for £144 for one night for myself and my wife expecting to have a swish room with the promised waterfront view. Instead we got a normal sized room on the 16th floor facing a building site and what I believe to be student apartments. The main difference I could see between the standard double room and the executive was the office desk and two small bottles of water and one snack chocolate bar which was gratis. Unfortunately the promise of two bath robes was half filled I.e. One bath robe (not that we would have used them but a promise is a promise). We were advised by the friendly receptionist that rather than eat at the hotel there was a nice outdoor restaurant with a large screen to view the tennis or football unfortunately this was busy with 20 something young adults drinking the night away. After a small walk we decided to eat at the hotel. We chose the basic horseshoe gammon and chips for our main a nice light meal as it turned out the gammon was very small and the chips were more like potatoes wedges. Then for desert my wife really fancied the chocolate cake with hot chocolate sauce, what she received however was a large chunk of Iceland chocolate cake with cold chocolate sauce and had a very bland slice of New york cheesecake. To be honest we've eaten better at your 2 for 1 public houses. The sleep was broken as we both felt the bed seemed rather hard but we got some sleep at least. The breakfast however was great the service was fantastic and the welcome made us both feel special. All in all location was a bit in the middle between offices and a few bars and restaurants and the itv and bbc studios, room very overpriced and crammed, staff polite and courteous.
