Not geared up for tourists and totally no frills

In the 21st century near the epicentre of the Internet revolution this hotel offers internet connection at 14.99 dollars a day! Wifi is free in the lobby only as if people who aren't guests can access it free but paying guests can't . Coupled with 25 dollars for a very average breakfast ( don't bother there's an IHOP over the street) this hotel relies on its geographic location. Tourist rip off.

Great location

The hotel is in a great location. Even though it said on my booking confirmation that we had a room on the first floor, we were given a room on the ground floor. It was noisy as it was next to the road and the buses idled outside our window early in the morning. The room was clean and the staff were friendly and helpful. I think that it is overpriced for what it is and should be a 3 star not a 4 star hotel.

disastrous business trip

The hotel did not have any power form the night I arrived due to a reason that was not explained for the 3 days I stayed there. I can understand how a power outage due to a storm may not be under control of the Hotel but what I object to is being told that it will be fixed "In 2 hours" " by the morning" etc. when clearly this was not possible. I ended up having to move to, and pay for, another hotel.

Great Location but expensive and they charge a fortune for internet and parking

I booked this hotel for 2 nights. I got it for a good price (for the area) in a sale at apporx £100 per night. The location is excellent. One block from the piers. The room was very nice and modern, lovely bedding but the double beds were quite small and the room could easily fit kings. There were a lot of bad points though. Our room overlooked a bus depot which is bad enough but the noise from the buses was intolerable. The window must have been single glaze. I mean it was as if there was no window and the hundreds of buses where in and out all night. If you stay here make sure to ask for a room that does not overlook the bus depot. Considering we were paying £100 per night (and that was in a sale) I am shocked that they charge for in-room WiFi ($15 per day). In 2013, this is an essential amenity in a hotel. Considering I had just travelled through America for 2 weeks and had free WiFi in every hotel, including a £30 Travelodge, I do not expect to be charged for it at an expensive 4 star hotel like this. I should point out that I was actually given the WiFi free because it was our honeymoon. So nice customer service but not the point. We also arrived later than expected and it was too late to drop off our hire car as planned, so we had to use the hotel parking, which cost us £32!!!!!!! for ONE night!!!!!!!!! After checkout, we were able to leave our bags in the hotel until we needed to leave for the airport. When we picked them up, one of the staff members helped take one bag to the front door (approx 10 feet away) and then expected a tip! A thanks and a smile is what he got! That's America I guess. Bad points are generally what we remember though,all in all it was a very good hotel.

Teilweise mangelnde Sauberkeit. Haare am Duschvorhang. Aber auch im Restaurant. Pommes frites am Boden unter dem Tisch, trotzdem werden wieder Gäste platziert. Ist im Übrigen mehr Bistro als Restaurant. An der Bar lange Wartezeiten da nur 1 Barkeeper/in. Als Unterhaltung gab es einen Gitarrespieler. Spielte alles im gleichen Stil und zu laut. Je lauter die Gespräche der Gäste wurden, je lauter spielte er. Gäste haben Restaurant verlassen, oder gingen von vornherein raus. Musikalische Unterhaltung ja, aber bitte dezent. Ansonsten gutes Hotel, gute Lage und die öffentlichen Verkehrsmittel vor der Haustüre.

Gute Lage aber in die Jahre gekommen. Hält nicht mehr die aktuellen Standards eines 4 Sterne Hotels.
