Fantastic location for shopping but not for sleeping

We booked a two night stay and our room was facing St. John's Street. What a disaster; we were in 'night-club land' and the noise was horrendous and continued through to morning. Reception appeared to be understanding #3.40isAM#and arranged to get us moved to another room for our second night which was a 'quiet room'. Thankfully, we did find this room to be quiet. There was also a lack of communication between reception staff and dining room staff. Breakfast was included in our booking but the dining room staff told us both mornings that breakfast was not included. Thus not a good experience for us. We would only recommend this hotel if you want to visit the night-clubs and if not, do not accept a room that is on St. Johns Street.

Not what it appears to be on website!

Booked this hotel for a weekend getaway as it advertised spa/gym facilities however there are no such facilities at this hotel. On questioning, the staff report these facilities exist at another of their hotels.. false advertising?? The hotel itself is lovely and clean, great location, just wasn't what we were expecting and very much a disappointment after spending so much money. One other thing I would add is that the hotel was ridiculously hot, particularly in the restaurant. Heating seems to be on overdrive! But it was uncomfortable at times.

Good basic price but what about the extras!

Comfortable, warm, convenient for a one-night stay, and room price was good,but... £4.00 for a cup of coffee after dinner £10.00 if you wanted to use the internet via wireless £10.00 to park in nearby carpark In addition staff forgot our wakeup call, brought me the wrong salad at dinner (then rectified) and wanted to charge us extra (£17.50 per head) for breakfast although this was clearly stated on our booking form as included in the overnight price! A pity, because in many ways a pleasant stay - just left us feeling we couldn't move without being charge extra...

city location- great staff

We did have a problem with the shower, however the staff were up to the room like a shot and when they couldn't fix it we were moved to another room. I couldn't fault this service.
