Throughly enjoyed our stay. We were able to check in three hours early and leave our bags on our departing day, which really made our trip stress free. All staff were incredibly friendly.||Our room was very modern and the beds were extremely comfortable. The bathroom was a little small and the pressure on the shower wasn’t fantastic but not a major issue for a few nights stay. We also found it odd to not have a towel rack. ||We enjoyed a tasty cocktail in the bar area downstairs and there is lots of games / music which created a nice atmosphere. Breakfast was enjoyable, with lots of choice and tasty pastries! ||Overall I would recommend this hotel, especially for a younger crowd.

I stayed at this hotel when attending a works night out. Have to say the hotel blew my mind. It was such a breath of fresh air. From the moment i arrived to when the time i left its was like being at home. Checked in at the bar and had a free cocktail which was a nice surprise. The room was fab and they had even personalized my stay by writing a fab welcome on the mirrors. The room was super clean, very practical and the bed was super comfy. When i came back from our night out there hotel was buzzing, lots of people around still drinking and enjoying themselves. Breakfast in the morning was welcome hangover cure. It was a help yourself buffet ( they even had a pancake maker) Being so close to the city its a perfect location and i will be back for sure. Highly recommend this hotel
