bed was excellent and enormous. Nice bathroooms and toiletries provided. Reception area has nice sofas and all well decorated - although after 8pm on Friday and Saturday night not worth visiting as filled with drunken visitors (it's all open to non-residents) and loud music so if that's not your cup of tea head elsewhere.
Other Comments
Firstly had to change room due to dozens of hen and stag do participants staying across all floors of the hotel. Despite doing this and being assured there were none on the 6th floor, we were still woken at 4am, 4.30 and just before 5am. Unlike any other tv built in the last twenty years, there's doesn't have an information button so you never know what youre watching or what's on next. No hot chocolate or biscuits in the room, just a couple of fruit tea bags. And one 500ml bottle of water between two people for two nights! Grape juice spilt on bed first night. Sheets not changed second night, just bed remade. Bar/restaurant eye wateringly expensive for what's provided e.g. £15 for a burger. On checking out was told I had been undercharged by £5 when booked six weeks earlier so would not have to pay this. Seemed rather miserly given there mistake to start with and the problems endured on first night. Finally, your special offer of £75 a night is far from good value, cheaper direct.
