Nice Hotel, Nice staff Posted 25-Jun-2015
Initial impressions were not great. My first observation was that the hotel was part of a terraced building very close to the road. The bath floor had bits of hair on it. The shower and shampoo gels were half finished - fine for a remaining guest but not okay for a guest just arriving to take up residence. The coffee & tea mugs were unclean. However, everything was better moving on from those first observations. My entire stay (6 nights) was made excellent by positive interactions with the professional and courteous staff. The hotel rooms are adequately spaced, so not too much next door neighbour noise. The room was spacious with plenty of storage place. Daily cleaning of rooms. There was daily supply of tea, coffee and hot chocolate sachets, and the brown and white sugar to go with them, as well as UHT milk. Also, there was regular supply of toiletries. There was a working TV with Freeview channels although they were limited due to range. Although located on the road sleep came easily. Hotel staff were very nice and cheerfully accommodated my non-standard breakfast choice which was made out of a compilation of bits from the different breakfast recipes. They were also very helpful with my heavy luggage which needed to be taken up the stairs to my room, as there was no lift. The hotel was ideally located within easy reach of amenities including the city centre with popular superstores and pharmacies and market place. Great place to stay. I would recommend it.
