Great location, terrible room

The hotel is in a great location, which is what you are paying for. Downstairs looks nice and the staff were friendly and helpful. The room was awful and in desperate need of refurbishment. I have stayed in nicer ‘contractor’ hotels. Room hadn’t been cleaned properly, had old opened beer bottles in cupboard. Breakfast was good

One of the bests

Relaxing, clean and quality setup with efficient and amicable staff. Only disappointment, there was no bar/fridge in the room. Also, Marriott didn’t give any rewards points for the stay. Overall, good stay and I would recommend others to use.

Pleasant but tired

Lovely stay, hotel a little tired but still comfortable. Good breakfast but no mushrooms, even had gluten free rolls. Hotel bar was open till 2pm but didn't have some ingredients for drinks i.e. Strawberries for a daiquiri or cucumber for Hendricks because the kitchen was locked. We paid for a deluxe room at £200 per night but it really was only worth half of that.

Training Bar Staff "On The Job"

Pros: Location and ambiance
Cons: Lack of experienced waiters and bar staff, although they were all commited to providing a good service, they were not provided with the tools, ie corr
Location: Great location for the sport, and for shopping, have a great weekend with a few couples when the rugby internationals are on in the new year.
Why did my husband have to show two bartenders (One on each night) how to make a Lemon, Lime and Bitters? Surely Hotels of this calibre should be employing experienced bar staff. Maybe the day has come where hotels are required to provide experienced bar staff. Although my Husband enjoyed the experience, telling the bar staff to ask for a rise, it really is poor local management practice not to give at least two days "off the job" training and assessment to staff. I blame the hotel management not the bar staff.
