The property was very nice, bedrooms fitted with heating for those cold days. My first experience with the hotel I got to say wasn't the best start checked in around 10pm Monday night, booked a Double Room expecting a double bed as it was advertised. Getting to the property I was told there was non left and that I would have to come down before 12pm to sort this out. I feel that wasn't the best service, the lady behind the counter didn't really seem to care about my complaint. This ruined the start of our little get away for me and my girlfriend. We got the room we booked for originally. But I don't think this should ever happen to anyone. Will look else where next time

Very clean and can tell everything is brand new! bed massive, TV great. Staff friendly. Only negative is that it is card only hotel, not great when I only want to use cash just meant we didn't use hotel facilities other than room, so can't comment on these.

Staff fantastic, location excellent (especially if you are visiting museum quarter or concert hall). Rooms comfortable with two excellent showers. Housekeeping also efficient. Great breakfast to set up the day too. For a short stay in a hotel away from the party scene but walkable to everywhere, we would highly recommend.

I stayed in this hotel for 3 nights. I never bother to write a review after staying anywhere but was compelled to do so with this hotel because of it's staff. They are exceptional. Nothing was too much trouble. They were helpful and friendly throughout. I would very much recommend staying here.
