Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service
Disliked: Amenities, property conditions & facilities
Pros- Nice on the river Nice staff helpful we changed rooms due to being put opposite the construction and next to the only lift in the hotel. Easy check in Cons- Rooms for 4 are small the pull out bed is so uncomfortable and you get a small thin quilt for this. Breakfast area very small and busy not much seating. Workers outside building no respect for people in the hotel. Very minimal parking as most of it is taken up by the builders vans, bricks and construction vehicles. Park on the street if you can it is cheaper and easy to arrange online it is free after 6 just check till when am wise. All in all the hotel is ok, probably wouldnt use again.

The room was cold, luckily was given a stand alone heater to boost the heat. Shower tray was blocked and water took ages to drain. Also feel a bit conned you book this hotel and then get notification after the booking you have to pay an additional£10 for parking. Would of gone else where. Staff very helpful.
