Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities
Unfortunately I was woken from noise (music) coming from a staff/ cupboard room which felt right next to mine between 1.30am and 5am. Not great preparation for the day ahead sadly. May have been a one off but has coloured my view a bit (btw, hotel were very good when the issue was raised so big thumbs up there)

Lovely area - I got dropped off by the bus and walked along the canal to the hotel. Gorgeous walk. Food in the bar was lovely and all the staff were super helpful and friendly. Breakfast was very good. Very COVID safe

Choose elsewhere for business stays.
Beds are small twin size, coffee maker did not work in the room, the shower heads sprays in many different directions and the iron was missing the button for steam. Unfortunately, I did not realize (other than the beds) any of the issues until early morning when I was preparing to leave so I was not able to get them rectified.
