    The hotel Staff were welcoming, very friendly and happy to help.

    My room (007) was tired and run down - it looked like the ceiling had seen better days and every now and then there was a disturbing 'electrical crackle' coming from somewhere.

    The proximity to the Central Rail Station and restaurants, cafes etc.

    Hotel staff were very helpful

    Room very hot and also we were on ground floor that faced into a alley/back entrance. We had to open windows as room was stifling but I could hardly sleep as I kep thinking somone may come round to back of hotel and climb in the window.

    The location as it was next to the Kings Theatre where I was attending a performance.

    No restaurant or bar.

  • Older travelers
    8.2

    went to Kings Theatre so location was perfect

    thought their was a bar in the hotel so was disappointed

  • Older travelers
    9.6

    We were very pleased with this hotel and its location. Although this was not mentioned when booking, parking is free on Saturdays and Sundays in front of the hotel; on weekdays you can park your car in a multi-story carpark just round the corner (< 1 minute walk) and give the ticket to the (friendly!) hotel receptionist, who puts it in a machine, after which you pay around 6.70 GBP per day (icluding night). If you leave car on Sunday in carpark you then only pay 1.50 GBP. Town (great on Fri. and Sat. nights!) and main museums were in walking distance. Regards, Michael K (The Netherlands) 2 Aug 2012
