Central location but flore boards noisy 11pm to 5am if hotel full with noisy nocturnal guest types or if a late wedding gets hosted. Recommend a request for a quiet part of hotel if possible. Check in receptionist resolved date confusion.

2/5 Poor

Disliked: Cleanliness, amenities, property conditions & facilities
Not sure if all the rooms are the same but mine was in serious need of a refurb or at the very least a serious spruce up. So, so dated which makes it look dirtier than it probably is. Could not even crack open the window and half the blinds were hanging broken! Considering how much they charge for a room, it’s quite shocking. Yes, it is a very convenient location but come on, a fresh lick of paint and deep clean wouldn’t go a miss there… Thankfully wifi was good and staff was nice which is about the only nice thing I can say about this place.
