      Good location for work, City and very close to the MetroCentre, very clean, comfortable and quiet, good sized room, would stay here again. Bus stop right outside the Hotel with very frequent services to the City Centre and the MetroCentre.

      Pleased to find that the price of 2 breakfasts was included as the print out said it was not.

      Had to call down to Reception to work out how to switch on hairdryer - not obvious there is a switch above the skirting board !!

      Spacious clean room and bathroom. One niggle - when I asked reception for a bedside table she said I couldn't have one although there were dents in the carpet where one had been sitting and obviously been removed. She did get us one however and everything from there was wonderful. Breakfast was perfectly adequate, well prepared and presented. Loved the area and was excellently placed for shopping and eating. We would definitely recommend it and would return to this hotel with pleasure.

      Nothing really but on our arrival the bins immediately outside the hotel entrance and car park were overflowing and a glass bottle had fallen out. There was broken glass where we had to walk and the unsightly bins did put us off before going inside to register. Not a big problem but it is the first thing guests see on arriving.

      good size room, friendly staff, clean room

      Do not stay at this hotel on a friday or saturday night if you wish to sleep. I got 2 hours sleep between 5 and 7am after a hen party created disturbances all night which finally resulted in their eviction by police at 5am on saturday morning when I was finally able to get some sleep! All this took place outside my room as the hen do had their room opposite mine at 3.30am I phoned reception to complain and ask for a refund. This was awaiting me at breakfast 7.30am. What the hotel staff have to deal with they deserve a medal they remained professional and calm throughout the night and had a lot of patience.I will never be visiting this hotel again.

      Convenient and reasonable cost. Staff very helpful.

      Poor breakfast. Room and corridor leading to bedroom stank of cigarette smoke!

      Didn't like that I was given a disabled room and also a toilet that was not flushing and having to move rooms at midnight. Didn't like that when we arrived the hotel didn't have our booking which was made online and I had a reference number and confirmation of booking. Didn't like at breakfast time the tables weren't cleaned and also that plates/cutlery were not stocked up. Cleanilness in the hotel rooms was excellent - shame about the reception/breakfast room!

      The hotel was comfortable and clean and the hotel staff were friendly and helpful

      The breakfast was not that good. Orange juice tasted liked water, the tea was not very nice either and the cooked breakfast was poor

      The hotel its self was very clean and everything we expected. But the breakfast was badly organised we came down about 9.00 hardly anything left to eat, no plates, only 1 toasting machine working which meant long que's, coffee machine was not working so this was very disapointing appart from them hotel was lovely

      Excellent value for money. Clean tidy room in a good location - walking distance from metro centre was perfect. Quick and easy to check in and out with ample free parking - excellent!

      Staff not very helpful. We were asking for travel advice which was vague at best and as it turns out actually inaccurate. No room service was a problem as we returned from our concert just after midnight to find that nothing nearby was open for food and that the hotel couldn't even offer us toast or a sandwich. Breakfast was ridiculous as there were very few seats and limited supply of food. Everything was "on it's way" the cups were on their way, when they eventually arrived and you could get a coffee there was no milk. The cooked breakfast arrived in portions to feed 6 people at a time and when you did actually get it there was no cutlery etc etc. I fully appreciate that it is excellent value to have breakfast provided at all for the price we paid but feel if you are going to do so then it should be done right and not served begrudgingly by bad tempered staff.

      I did actually book a twin room but we were given a double. We didn't get to the hotel until 1am and just wanted to go to sleep so didn't complain.
